After seeing a documentary about the plight of commercial hens, Jane Howorth decided to provide a safe haven for retired chickens. The result of her efforts was the British Hen Welfare Trust, which now saves many birds from slaughter and gives them a better life. The charity has re-homed more than 600,000 commercial hens and is working towards a free-range future.
