A world-famous dog listener will be in Aylsham later in the year to help raise money for a charity which helps people with their pets.
The work of Jan Fennell is known all over the globe and she will be speaking at the Jubilee Family Centre in Norwich Road in June to help boost Cinnamon Trust funds.
The trust aims to keep pets together with owners who are finding it difficult to care for them. It provides a range of services, helping with the day to day care when owners can't cope through illness or disability, or by finding the owners pet-friendly nursing homes if they themselves need to go into care. The trust also finds permanent or temporary foster homes.
The north Norfolk branch of the trust has, in the last seven months, developed from a small number of volunteers into an active group of 16 based around North Walsham, Sheringham, Aylsham and out to Burnham Market.

'We are particularly excited about the talk by Jan. She speaks all over the world and is coming to help raise money for us.'
