Chicken & Egg. Welfare and Food Together.
Seeing as this issue celebrates our 600,000th hen we thought it
appropriate to drill into that number and let you know about some
wonderful milestones our re-homing teams have achieved recently.

Our volunteers deal with hundreds of hens
at a time so clocking up to thousands of
hens happens quickly in some areas. All
our teams are fabulous, but here are a few
recent milestones celebrated:
TOTAL: 600,000!
Similarly some of our volunteers have
reached milestones of their own. Lucy
Medill, South Wales, helped hens for 12
years before stepping down as co-ordinator
recently, and Adele Hall in Lancashire, who
began volunteering with us back in October
2005 has just hit the dozen years high point.
Adele runs a hen collection point, and does
so much more for the charity from setting
up a bespoke database, to fulfilling our
finance function. We simply would not be
where we are today without her.
To Adele, and every single one
of our volunteers - respect!
Good Eggs
