Here is a letter from our 2017 charity, The Cinnamon Trust:
Gill Duroe has forwarded your wonderful donation of £2,000 which is very much appreciated.
I am absolutely delighted you chose The Trust as your Charity of the Year and that your agility show was such a fantastic success! Very well done to you all! Please convey my heartfelt thanks to all the members of Letchworth Agility Club for helping make this gift possible and I hope your four-legged members all enjoy a delicious sausage treat each!
I thought you would like to know that we’re going to use your donation to help pay for a therapeutic laser device that our vet nurses can use for a whole range of geriatric problems that beset our sanctuary residents. It works brilliantly for pain and encourages healing. And, of course, no side effects and an enjoyable therapy for the recipients!
Once again thank you all very much indeed.
Mrs Averil R. Jarvis MBE
