Hidden eggs in wine…who knew?!

Our Free Range Friday campaign helps to make people aware of the use of eggs in processed products as well as being a fundraising opportunity for the charity. It’s English Wine Week from May 28 – June 5, and it’s a little known fact that egg whites are used as a fining agent to clarify wine. Be honest, did you know that? […]

Running for the hens…

Pictured here is the wonderful Emma Carter-Nash, who is running the Hull 10k to raise money for the BHWT – go Emma!

Gifts in Celebration

Did you know that supporting the BHWT at a forthcoming celebration is a wonderful way to make a difference with a gift that lasts? A birthday, wedding, civil partnership, christening, retirement or anniversary celebration are all great opportunities to ask for a donation to help raise funds for us, in lieu of a more traditional gift.
