A volunteer from North Wootton is encouraging animal-lovers to get involved with The Cinnamon Trust after discovering first-hand how rewarding it is to help support the elderly and their pets.
Veronica Woods, 62, became involved with the charity shortly after retiring last September when she spotted a notice in a local shop requesting volunteer dog walkers.
She said: “It’s been a lovely experience. It gets me out and about and has been nice to get to know Mrs McAdam. I don’t think that I could have a dog myself as it wouldn’t be practical, but I love walking Sam.
