Vet’s pop-up tea party tops up pet charity fund
Fundraisers held a pop-up tea party on the forecourt of Ardmore Veterinary Group in Cornard Road last month, raising funds for a charity which helps elderly people and their pets.
Lynne Evans (pictured with the cheque on the right), a receptionist at Ardmore, handed over £534 to Hannah Bitten, a representative of The Cinnamon Trust, a charity based in Cornwall which has a network of 15,000 volunteers throughout the country.
When elderly people become ill, housebound or go into hospital, Trust volunteers provide care for pets by taking them for a walk, bringing in food and look after them. Pictured with Lynne and Hannah are staff and fundraisers.
