The Cinnamon Trust

When people with pets become unwell, there is an added stress of considering what is going to happen to their beloved animals whilst they are in hospital. In addition, it may be that a patient is no longer mobile and may need help with exercising their pooch.

The Cinnamon Trust is the only specialist national charity for this type of support. They have a network of 15,000 volunteers who 'hold hands' with pet owners so that they can be kept together. For example: they will walk dogs or foster smaller animals should hospital care be required. They will also clean cages and fetch food.

Should staying at home not be an option, then The Cinnamon Trust have details of care homes and retirement housing that are happy to accept pets. If it has been previously arranged, they can also take on the care of a pet who has lost its owner.

Friends in the Community:

Seaton and District Hospital League of Friends have been organising and running The Friends in the Community group for the past 20 years. 

Its purpose has expanded over the years to accommodate the changing environment of the hospital and community, the main aim is now to challenge loneliness in the over 60's in our community. I am sending a reminder of our group as this will now fall under the score of social prescribing. 


We meet every second Monday afternoon in the month, 2pm -4pm at St. Gregory's Church Hall, its an informal friendly group and we enjoy listening to speakers, participating in activities, crafts, games, quizzes and of course a cuppa and a chat. In June we have an outing and July and December parties, we do not meet in August. We have a coach, for those unable to make their own way which will pick up people in Colyton, Seaton and Beer at designated stops by arrangement. 


There is no charge to attend and whilst we welcome anyone, we do not have the volunteers to give one to one assistance. We do not have the facilities to look after anyone likely to wander off from the hall alone, we do however, welcome Carers to accompany the person they care for. 


If you are aware of anyone you feel would benefit from getting out of their home and socialisng with others in a safe and caring environmnet or if you wish to discuss the service, please contact by Email on or visit the website by Clicking Here
