National Picnic Week

Posted 9th June 2017 03:46pm by

The aim of Free Range Friday™ is to raise funds and awareness for the British Hen Welfare Trust by asking individuals, companies and community groups to hold a get together with friends, family or colleagues and cook or bake using free range eggs.

Fundraising packs are provided which include all the materials you need to get you started; invitation cards, posters, stickers and a handy guide full of ideas of how to make your event a success.

If you are struggling to think of a theme for your Free Range Friday, why not hold one during National Picnic Week?

The event runs from 16 June to 25 June so you have two Fridays to pick from. The idea is simple. Just bake or buy some yummy goods containing free range eggs and share them with friends, family or colleagues in exchange for a donation for the charity.

The BBC Good Food website has some wonderful recipes for picnic treats: https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/collection/picnic

If you’d rather not have to whip up some treats yourself we have an excellent alternative. Our friends at Higgidy have given some money off vouchers to include in our fundraising packs so you can get money off their utterly gorgeous range of quiches and pies (all containing free range eggs, of course).

Higgidy are also offering a prize bundle to whoever holds the best Free Range Friday event! The bundle is worth £45 and will include:

  • 3 x Pies
  • 3 x Little Pies
  • 4 x Quiches
  • 4 x 6-pack Veggie Rolls
