More and more of our supporters are raising funds by rolling up their sleeves, dusting off their recipe books and baking, and so far this year over £10,000 has been raised to help re-home thousands of former commercial laying hens, which have become wonderful, cheeky and endearing pets in household across the country.
A special thanks must go Wendy Turner, who runs the Cosy Coop Chicken Boarding house at Wish End Farm in East Sussex. Wendy’s Cosy Coop supporters attended a Free Range Friday back in the Autumn and raised a fabulous £75 for more hens in need. Guests enjoyed home-made cakes and a raffle, alongside a guess the name of the cake and even a pin the wattle on the cockerel! Wendy’s day was such a success that she is already planning her next Free Range Friday to be held in Spring 2016 to help more c-lucky ladies.
If you would like to take Wendy’s lead whilst helping us fulfil our vision of a free range future for all hens, why not get involved and hold your own Free Range Friday?
Please contact Fiona Lockwood at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01884 860084 to order your free fundraising pack, which includes all the materials you need to get started.
Remember – Free Range Friday donations really do make a world of difference to our lovable ladies.
And don’t forget about the FAB competition we have for you right now. Hold a Free Range Friday and send us your donation in November and you will be in with a chance to WIN a painting of your favourite hen commissioned by our very kind supporter Lesley Ann Cooper.
