Loneliness is a problem which many elderly and terminally ill people face on a daily basis. Pets are often a key, and sometimes only, member of the family for these people. However, many are unable to keep these pets without support. The ‘Cinnamon Trust’ is a registered charity which helps maintain the treasured relationship between owners and their pets. It provides them with the practical help they need to overcome the difficulties they endure. My family and I are volunteers for the charity and find it extremely rewarding. We walk three dogs on a weekly basis building a strong connection and bond with not only the dog but also their owners. Small steps such as supporting the ‘Cinnamon Trust’ can make a huge impact on many people’s lives.
