This year the British Hen Welfare Trust are attending a number of shows around the UK and we would love your help!
The shows are a great way to meet new people and chat about chickens, not to mention a free ticket to have a peek around the show!
A day at a show usually consists of helping on the stand by interacting with the public and telling them about us and what we do, encouraging donations into the collection tins and handing out leaflets. At some of the bigger shows you might even spot some celebrities! Last year we met Carol Kirkwood and Adam Henson from the BBC at Country File Live and got to tell them all about why we love chickens. We often take a couple of chickens to the shows to show the public what beautiful, friendly creatures they are.
Occasionally we are asked to give talks or presentations about the British Hen Welfare Trust and our work, and about hen care, so if you are a confident public speaker please let us know!
Please see the list of events below for this year and we look forward to hearing from you!
