Jinney Ring Charities

It always causes us difficulties when we are approached to give charitable donations or help run charity events - there are so many worthy causes, more so when times are hard and people cut back spending in all areas. We would like to help everyone but sadly it is not possible.

Rather than spend the whole year with feelings of inadequacy, we choose 3 or 4 charities each year and support them in whatever appropriate way we can. This may be by raising funds for them at our events or just allowing them to collect funds themselves on site, or perhaps by supporting them with events for their "customers".

If you would like us to consider your charity for help for next year or beyond please e-mail us with details.

Details of this years charities are found below:

Rees Foundation

Rees Foundation

The Rees Foundation was set up to support care leavers from residential or foster care of all ages by providing the support, advice, resources, and assistance (financial or otherwise) that most people could simply turn to family for. We are creating a belonging network for all people who have been in care.

How do we do this? By connecting people with care experience to make a positive change in their own lives and the lives of others with care experience.

Our current project work includes:
* A Mentoring Qualification
* The Mentoring and Networking Service
* A Signposting Service
* A unique training package to raise awareness of care experience, 'Living With Strangers'

Jinney our Sponsored Guide Dog Puppy

Jinney our Sponsored Guide Dog Puppy

Each year we host a sponsored walk called Dogs Unite (previously Go Walkies). In 2015 we reached our target to raise a total of £5000 in donations, and this achievement has entitled us to the privilege of naming a Guide Dog puppy.

The Cinnamon Trust

The Cinnamon Trust

The Trust's primary objective is to respect and preserve the treasured relationship between owners and their pets.

This is the only specialist national charity for people in their last years and their much loved, much needed companion animals.

A network of 15,000 volunteers “hold hands” with owners to provide vital loving care for their pets. The Trust keeps them together - for example, they walk a dog every day for a housebound owner; foster pets when owners need hospital care; fetch the cat food or even clean out the bird cage, etc.

When staying at home is no longer an option, they have a Pet Friendly Care Home Register which lists care homes and retirement housing happy to accept residents with pets and, providing previous arrangements have been made, will take on life time care of a bereaved pet.

The Cinnamon Trust represents peace of mind for owners, and love, care and safety for beloved pets.

Helping 14,000 people a year with 16,000 animals, and running two Home From Home sanctuaries, costs a lot of money, and they need your help to make sure we’re always there. Here at the Jinney Ring we will support this charity during 2014 through education stalls and events. We do hope you will have a look, and if you have the time why not become a member and/or volunteer?

We are supporting this charity by hosting the Animals R Magic event on Sunday 16th July 2017. Details available in our Events section.
