If you’re looking for a bit of fresh air and exercise and also love pets, then being a volunteer for the Cinnamon Trust could be for you!
I was completely oblivious to this great charity, until one day my partner mentioned she was going to apply to be a volunteer (see photo of her with the lovely dog Gemma!). She helps a couple of residents in her local area, by walking their dogs, as they are not currently in a position to do so.
She does it to help but also she also thoroughly enjoys it! She’s built up a great rapport with both the owners and their dogs, whilst also meeting and saying hello to many other people on their walks.
After looking into it, it really is a fantastic charity, with a network of over 17,000 volunteers, who ‘hold hands’ with owners to provide vital loving care for their pets, keeping them together. This can include walking a dog for a housebound owner, fostering pets when owners need hospital care, fetching a cat food or even cleaning out a bird cage!
The trust needs help from people, to make sure there is peace of mind for owners, love, care, and safety for their beloved pets.
If this sounds of interest to you, particularly in these testing times, please check out their website to get involved.
I was also interested to see who the wonderful Patrons of the Charity are, including the legendary Sir Paul McCartney.
Be safe and be happy! Toby
