Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
I'm running on behalf of the British Hen Welfare Trust to raise funds and awareness for the thousands of hens kept in cages in the UK's egg factories. Never seeing natural sunlight or grass, at 18 month old these hens are killed because they are no longer economically viable because their egg production slows. The BHWT rehomes thousands of hens every year and gives them a chance at having life outside the cages.
We have rehomed 6 exbattery hens from the BHWT and they bring so much joy to the family. We have seen them grow feathers, confidence and have fresh eggs every morning! Hopefully running 26 mile will inspire people to donate so more hens can be saved.
