BHWT may win awards
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
