The owner of a black 
labrador in Martham is looking for some help taking him on walks.

Six-year-old Rocky is much-loved by his owner, who is in his 80s, but the canine needs more exercise than his owner can provide.

The Cinnamon Trust is a national charity that is leading the search for potential helpers in the area.

The aim of the charity is to keep the elderly and terminally ill with their pets for as long as possible.

To facilitate this goal, the charity relies on volunteers who can assist with providing day to day care.

In doing so, volunteers can relieve frail or physically impaired pet owners of any concerns they may have concerning the welfare of their pets.

If you would like to register to take Rocky on walks, or find out more about how you can help pets and their owners in your area, call 01736 758707, email or visit
