Chicken and Egg Issue 12 - page 4-5

Where to start? What a year! I was given the surprise of my life when a letter
arrived from The Cabinet Office of my MBE in the New Year’s Honours List.
And once the news had sunk in, I felt an enormous sense of gratitude that I will,
at some point, be going to the palace - for the girls.
Then on 23rd January 2016 we reached our target of half a million hens when
Dee landed in our West Midlands team from a local farm. Julie Elliott, and
daughter Rosie, were the surprised and delighted recipients of not only a very
special hen, but an amazing array of gifts and goodies too. You can read more
about Dee inside.
We have a celebrity scoop interviewwith Liverpool and Wales footballer,
Joe Allen, who gives us his take on hen keeping and an interviewwith the
ultimate mayonnaise manufacturer, Hellmann’s. You will, of course, have
already spotted our new look magazine; I like my magazine as I like my eggs –
fresh – and I hope you like our crisp new style. What we haven’t changed is our
usual clutch of informative articles, fabulous fundraising tales and pics of your
gloriously spoilt hens.
And as we begin our second decade with this spring edition, I want to remind
everyone that this charity is changing lives - ours as well as our hens;
changing hearts and minds and leading the way forward for those that to
date have been hidden away.
Onward to the million.
