Martin got on his
bike for BHWT!
Martin Standen from
Storrington found two
novel ways to raise
money and awareness
by completing a 500k
cycle ride and writing a
murder mystery tale.
The cycle challenge
took him through
Rajasthan over 6 days
averaging 55 miles per
day. His novel ‘A
Question of Loyalty’
sells well with some of
the profits coming our
way. Thank you Martin
for helping raise our
profile so far from home.
Pupils prove how giving they can be
Pupils from Trinity School, Teignmouth, chose us as part of their Giving Nations fundraising
project, a national initiative which supports young people to give. Pupils are challenged to
turn generosity into action through time, energy or voice. Students said:
We chose the charity because we wanted to support an animal charity and one of our team
used to keep ex-battery chickens which she got from the British Hen Welfare Trust. The
Giving Nations Project week was great fun! As well as a ‘head in the hole’ photo
opportunity and ball game, cakes, raffle and handmade bracelets for sale we also had two of
our teachers’ chickens,
Penny and Pepper, in
school for people to feed
and hold in exchange for a
donation to the charity.
They helped to attract
people to our stall and even
persuaded some of the
visitors to start keeping
chickens themselves!’
The project was enjoyed by
everyone and a great
success, raising £135.34 as
well as focusing attention
on BHWT. A big thank
you and well done to all
Trinity School pupils and
staff involved.
