A hen char­ity which has saved more than 570,000 birds from slaugh­ter is cel­e­brat­ing be­ing short­listed for two pres­ti­gious awards.

The Bri­tish Hen Wel­fare Trust is one of five char­i­ties to be short­listed in the Small Char­ity, Big Achiever cat­e­gory in the Third Sec­tor Awards. The win­ner will be an­nounced on Septem­ber 21.

Fur­ther good news came when the char­ity found out it had been short­listed in the Char­ity of the Year (with an in­come of less than £1 mil­lion) cat­e­gory in the Char­ity Times Awards. The win­ner will be an­nounced on Oc­to­ber 4.

Just to be short­listed for th­ese awards is recog­ni­tion of not only the char­ity’s re-hom­ing ef­forts but also its ed­u­ca­tional role and cam­paign work.

Char­ity founder Jane Howorth MBE said: “We are de­lighted to have been short­listed for th­ese awards, par­tic­u­larly as we are a small team.” MORE: www.bhwt.org.uk
