The Cinnamon Trust
The Cinnamon Trust, founded in 1985 by Mrs Averil Jarvis, is a national charity whose primary objective is to preserve the relationship between elderly owners and their much loved pets and to overcome difficulties that can arise. A national network of over 15,000 community volunteers provide practical help when any aspect of day to day care causes a problem, for example walking the dog for a housebound owner.
A national fostering service is provided for pets who’s owners face a spell in hospital. The Cinnamon Trust also provides long term care for pets whose owners have died or moved to residential accommodation that will not accept pets. The Cinnamon Trust is very close to our hearts here at the Gallery, our mum Audrey recently gave a home to Charlie Brown a Yorkshire Terrier who lost his owner and brother within a couple of weeks of each other. Charlie Brown is 15 and semi blind with cataracts. After the loss of his family he was a very nervous little dog, but to see the change in him after just a few months is wonderful and there really is life in the old dog yet! We are sure you will agree this is a charity worthy of support.
