Cracking offer from Omlet on World Egg Day will help charity re-home hundreds more hens

In celebration of World Egg Day, today, Omlet will be donating £50 from every Eglu sold to the British Hen Welfare Trust, and hopes to raise thousands for the charity! All monies raised will help the charity to help even more hens enjoy a free range retirement.

Since launching in 2004 Omlet have sold over 35,000 Eglus and estimates that approximately 105,000 chickens call an Eglu a home. Over the years these lucky chickens have produced at least 88 million eggs that have been enjoyed poached, boiled and fried, turned into birthday cakes, wedding cakes, soufflés and of course Omlettes!

Jane Howorth, founder of the charity is delighted by Omlet’s fundraising efforts, “Our partnership with Omlet began nearly 10 years ago and along with sponsoring our welcome packs to date they have donated over £4,000. Thank you Omlet, and thank you for your continued support!”

The national charity which re-homes commercial laying hens, and educates the public about how they can make a difference to hen welfare, also encourages support for the British egg industry.  Since its launch in 2005 the charity has re-homed over 485,000 hens from over 30 ‘pop-up’ locations run by volunteers across the UK. Later this year the BHWT hopes to meet ‘Dee’, their soon to be 500,000th lucky hen – ‘D’ is 500,000 in roman numerals.

The offer will run until midnight tonight, if you would like to place an order or find out more about the Omlet Eglu hen coop visit www.omlet.co.uk.
