National hen charity, The British Hen Welfare Trust, is proud to have recently been appointed as official Charity of the Year from October 2015 by the British Veterinary Nursing Association (BVNA).
The charity will now work alongside the BVNA to raise awareness of keeping hens as backyard pets and raise funds for its Hen Advice Line.
Jane Howorth, the Trust’s Founder, explained: “Being selected as Charity of the Year by the highly respected BVNA gives the British Hen Welfare Trust the most wonderful opportunity to raise awareness not only about giving good pet homes to ex-commercial hens, but also to encourage improved veterinary care for the thousands of hens we help each year.
“I’m very excited about what we can achieve together.”
