A CHARITY which helps elderly and ill dog owners has launched an urgent appeal for help in Stonehouse.

The Cinnamon Trust, a national charity for the elderly, terminally ill and their pets, is calling for volunteers who can spare an hour a week making sure dogs get out and about.

A good walk can make all the difference to the owners being able to keep their fury companions living with them.

If anyone would like to volunteer or even have a chat about what is involved please ring in on 01736 758707 and speak to Tressa or Sally or email appeals@cinnamon.org.uk
