Hens are making friends

Alice House Hospice introduced their 4 Henpower Hens, Martha, Henny Penny, Paxo and Tufty Belle, in October this year and they have spent the last few weeks making friends with patients at the Hospice.

Each week a Henpower Workshop takes place in Day Care which all the patients are invited to join in with.  The activities have included making fruit banners for the hens and making welcome bunting alongside other ‘hengaging’ activities.

The hens have been very warmly received by the patients and the workshops provide a chance for some new and stimulating activities to take place.  Other times, patients find it restful to simply sit and watch the hens passing the time of day in the gardens outside the centre.
