A charity is looking for volunteers in Pocklington and the surrounding area to help out elderly pet owners.

The Cinnamon Trust is a national charity whose wonderful volunteers help people over retirement age and those in the latter stages of a terminal illness by offering all kinds of pet care.

A Trust spokesman said: “What happens if illness, injury or just the fact that we all get older eventually affects our ability to look after our four legged companions?

“A large number of elderly or ill pet owners become very worried about their ability to care for their pets.

“Would you like to take this gorgeous Cocker Spaniel x Llassa Apso out for a walk as her owner isn’t able to at the moment. She is good on the lead and loves people.”

If anyone can help please email volunteer@cinnamon.org.uk or call Patrick or Sally during office hours on 01736 758 707. You can also visit www.cinnamon.org.uk for more details.
