I hope that you might be able to help and if not perhaps you would be so kind as to pass this along to one of your colleagues who might be able to assist raise awareness of our search for dog volunteers in and around Holyhead particularly around the LL65 postcode area.
The Cinnamon Trust is the national charity that supports elderly and terminally ill people and their pets. We aim to keep owner and pet together for as long as possible with the help of a national network of volunteers who assist when day to day pet care poses a problem.
We are desperately trying to put together a team of dog walking volunteers to provide support for an elderly long term resident who lives in the Holyhead/Anglesy area and their beloved dog a friendly much loved Parsons Jack Russel named Max .
We wondered whether you have a community /volunteer virtual reality wall or perhaps a spot on your social media page where you might be able to help us to publicise our urgent need for volunteers all over your general locality.
I am also able to post you out some posters and leaflets if you think that this might be more useful for you to build a feature story/article around The Cinnamon Trust and the search for volunteers as well as sending you some
further information and permission granted photographs of existing Cinnamon Trust volunteers.
Our charities aim is to relieve elderly and ill owners of any worry concerning the welfare of their pets both during and after their own lifetime making us unique among charities.
All of our volunteers help in the ways that are most appropriate to them.
Teams of our volunteer walkers take it in turn to visit housebound owners, to take dogs for daily walks, volunteers can also foster pets as one of their family when owners face a spell in hospital, they take pets to the vet, clean the budgie's cage out. We take any problem posed in day to day care of pets.
The volunteers can gain access to our volunteer page on our website or www.cinnamon.org.uk or by emailing us at email@example.com.
Any help that you are able to offer to help us Raise Awareness will be very gratefully accepted.
I would be really appreciative if you would let me know if you think that you might be able to help us out as we have been desperately searching for urgent dog walking support for residents in your community.
