Thanks to you, our wonderful supporters,
we have raised over £180,000 towards the
new BHWTWelfare and Education Centre!
We are overwhelmed at your generosity. If
that wasn’t enough, our fundraising had a
great big boost recently when we received
cheque through the post for £1,000
the lovely folk at Yeo Valley. A supporter
nominated us to become one of their Yeoken
charities between October and December.
This allowed customers to donate their
Yeokens to us and, as a result,
we received
a £1,000 donation!
That money will be going directly towards
our welfare and education centre. In case

you need a reminder, the centre will be
a vast improvement on our current
re-homing facility with a hen hospital,
two coops, more storage and a training area.
The centre will also have a larger dedicated
space for putting on training events and
talks for businesses, schools, veterinary
professionals and individuals.
While we are storming towards our
£250,000 target, we still have just under
£70,000 left to raise.
You can get involved
with any number of our fundraising activities
– why not hold a Free Range Friday (there’s
cake involved) or, if you’re watching your
waistline, simply make a donation instead.
