Members of the Brentknoll team attended the Animals r Magic event this July and what a day we had!
The annual event brings together animals of all kinds from ferrets to Alpacas and celebrates all things animal. The event is ran by the Cinnamon trust and their wonderful volunteer Janet Morgan, who sadly informed us that this will be her last year as organiser whilst she enjoys retirement from event planning.
Who are the Cinnamon Trust?
The Cinnamon Trust work to improve the lives of elderly and terminally ill people and their pets by relieving the anxieties, problems, and sometimes injustices they face. The Trust was founded in 1985 by Averil Jarvis and was named after her beloved Corgi “Cinnamon”; since it’s set up they have helped countless people preserve the relationship with their pets during illness or old age.
Client Care Supervisor Jenni Layton and Nurses Hayley Oates and Kelly Wilkes volunteered to represent the practice at this years event, the event was held on Sunday 17th July and we couldn’t have asked for better weather as the sun shone all day.
The children were kept entertained with our throw the ball into the dogs mouth game and there were lots of goodies for those with a keen aim. Sadly Hayley and Kelly weren’t able to win themselves a prize but Jenni seemed to have a better throwing arm! Our game successfully raised £35.00 which we will donate to our chosen charity Guide Dogs for the Blind.
As well as a bit of fun we were there to spread the word about the benefits of Hydrotherapy for dogs, we spoke to many pet owners during the day and there was lots of interest in our lovely pools (especially now that the weather is hotting up in Worcestershire).

Our Brentknoll mascot joined us for the day (thanks Jenni for braving the hot weather) and Benny the Brentknoll Dog had lots of fun with the hundreds of children visiting our stand. We took some great photos with some of our friends, do take a look at the collection below.
congratulations to all involved with the day, another successful event and we look forward to attending in the future.
