Request for Volunteers – Cinnamon Trust

The Cinnamon Trust is the national charity whose wonderful volunteers help people over retirement age and those in the latter stages of a terminal illness by offering all kinds of pet care. We urgently need dog walking volunteers in Annfield Plain, Stanley for a local resident who is not able to walk their three little dogs a 6 year old Shih Tzu, and two dear little 2 year old Cavalier King Charles Spaniels who would love to go for a good walk. If anyone would like to volunteer we would be delighted to hear from them.
We wondered if you would be able to help us publicise our need for volunteers in the area.
We always need new volunteers so even if you can only spare an hour a week we would love to hear from you,
Please call during office hours 01736 758707 email us at volunteer@cinnamon.org.uk or check out our website for more details www.cinnamon.org.uk

New Community hub?

Council to support new Community Hub proposal

New Community hub?

At Tuesday’s Council meeting, Stanley Town Councillors voted unanimously to support a new social project aimed to address social, training, health and wellbeing needs for a range of residents. The project, provisionally named ‘PACT House’, will be a collaboration between Stanley Police, the Town Council and other key partners and will be a ‘one stop shop’ for a number of support and community services, many of which are about to be displaced by the imminent closure of the Tommy Armstrong centre.  The Town Council has agreed to taking on the lease of the former Lloyds Bank building in Front Street Stanley to provide a base for a number of community projects, including a youth cafe, advice services and a number of others.  More information to follow.
