Chicken Club Volunteer

Our hen ladies need you...

You may have read in the press or on our website that we have four lovely hen ladies living at the Hospice who are part of the Henpower Project.

The ladies, Henny Penny, Martha, Paxo and Tufty Belle, are looking for someone to help with their housework…

Duties include:

  • Checking feed levels to make sure the ladies don’t go hungry
  • Cleaning out their coop, they aren’t that fussy but like a clean shavings bed once a week
  • Topping up their water, all this egg laying is thirsty work

They really are lovely girls and help lots with the patients.

Read some of our stories…
