Five thousand laying hens have been saved from slaughter thanks to volunteers in Newark.

The British Hen Welfare Trust team is celebrating rehoming its 5,000th bird. The trust rehomes them as pets.

The Newark team is led by co-ordinator Sam Wortley.

She said: “When I go into a farm on the morning of the rescue I feel a great sense of achievement.

“I feel like they are all my girls and I can’t wait for them to get to their new homes.

“It felt absolutely amazing celebrating rehoming our 5,000th hen.

“I am so proud of all my team. We all come from different backgrounds but on that one day a month we are all united for that one purpose.”

The BHWT has rehoming points across the UK. For information about rehoming hens register at the British Hen Welfare Trust website and then call 01884 860084.
