Volunteer work for the Cinnamon Trust
Jonathan has worked as a volunteer for the cinnamon trust for 5 years and has loved every minute of it.The charity helps people that are unable to get out and about by sending DBS checked volunteers round to walk their dog and to help, so that the person still has a pet and the companionship a pet can give. No matter how busy you are or how busy life is, there is always time to give. Jonathan helps walk dogs in his lunch time and finds giving time to help others is very satisfying.
He has walked several dogs over the five years and met so many different people and has made a good friend for life with one of the dog owners.
If you have spare time and feel you can help this wonderful charity then please contact the Cinnamon trust or go online to see their website and what they do , they offer so many other services and are a worthwhile charity.
