British Hen Welfare Day

British Hen Welfare Day is all about celebrating and raising awareness of our feathered friends over a cuppa and a slice of free range cake. The idea is to bake or buy some treats to share with friends, family, neighbours or colleagues in exchange for a donation for the BHWT. The money you raise will help save more hens from slaughter, as well as fund our campaigning work which educates the public about hen welfare.

Last year we raised a whopping £6,775.80 thanks to our supporters who pulled out all the stops. Their efforts were also match-funded by one generous supporter, making 2018’s BHWD our most successful event to date. But, this year we want to do even better!

This year British Hen Welfare Day will take place on Saturday 5th October 2019.

Get involved – Everybody’s welcome!

British Hen Welfare Day, now in its 4th year, is all about people coming together to help make hens happier and celebrate the greatness of the free-range egg.

Our supporters, volunteers and hen lovers across the country – through bake sales and other fundraising activities – help spread the word about rehoming commercial hens and the work of the BHWT, and raise money to help more hens.

From feather-light sponges to sumptuous chocolate cake, chunky muffins to silky cheesecakes – we ask you to bake, buy, borrow and beg to get your hands on some tasty treats and flock together with your friends, family and colleagues and raise funds. Help us to egghance the success of previous years and make this one a real cracker!

We are aiming to raise £10,000 in one day which will help save over 3,000 hens from slaughter and allow us to continue campaigning for a free-range future.
