Leave a Legacy
Imagine leaving a gift which will have an impact on the welfare of millions of hens in the future.
By remembering the British Hen Welfare Trust in your Will you will be saving hens from slaughter and giving them the chance to live out their days in the most natural way. Your gift will mean more hens becoming beloved pets throughout Britain, enjoying the free-range retirement they so thoroughly deserve. Education will be vital in shaping future attitudes to hen welfare and through our expanding schools programme we can influence young minds and future decision makers.
If hen welfare is important to you then a gift to the BHWT is the perfect way to continue your love and passion for hens beyond your lifetime.
Your will, your wishes
Making a Will is the only way to make sure your wishes are carried out after you’re gone. Naturally, you will want to think about your loved ones first; however, you may then wish to consider leaving a gift to the charity or charities which mean the most to you. We strongly recommend you seek advice from a professional Will writer such as a solicitor when you are ready.
If you would like to leave a gift to us, it is very important that the name of the charity, the British Hen Welfare Trust and the charity number 1147356, are clearly shown. Remember to keep your Will up to date – if you marry, divorce, separate or are widowed, you will need to alter it and your solicitor or Will writer can easily do this using a form called a codicil.

There are 3 types of legacy gift
- A residual legacy is where the gift is all (or part) of the value of your estate, after expenses and other legacies have been paid
- A pecuniary legacy is the gift of a particular sum of money
- A specific request is the gift of a particular item (a piece of jewellery, for example)
