Buy an Eglu Today and We’ll Donate £50 to the BHWT

Buy an Eglu this World Egg Day and Help a Hen!

Having supported the British Hen Welfare Trust for many years now, we have decided to do something eggstra special this World Egg Day. To celebrate the humble egg, the awesome chicken and 10 years of the BHWT, Omlet are going to donate money from every Eglu sale this World Egg Day to this marvellous organisation.

Order an Eglu today and we will donate £50 to the BHWT! That’s £50 for every Eglu Go, Eglu Go UP, Eglu Classic and Eglu Cube Chicken Coop sold today!

About the British Hen Welfare Trust

Established 10 years ago, the BHWT saves hens from slaughter by rescuing them at the end of their commercial laying life and finding them caring homes around the country. As well as rehoming hens, they educate consumers about caged eggs in processed food so they can make an informed choice when shopping and they actively promote Great British Free Range Farmers.

The BHWT’s work to increase consumer awareness has led to big names, such as Hellmans, switching to free range eggs in their food products. These policy changes have improved the quality of life for tens of thousands of hens. The BHWT have also played a role in improving veterinary care of backyard chickens by facilitating the training of vets across the country.

To date, the British Hen Welfare Trust has rehomed 486,192 chickens that have gone on to have happy, healthy lives, just like Lily, in the photo above. She was rescued by an Eglu owner earlier this year and after just eight months and a little TLC, she is looking fabulous and laying eggs every day.

All in all, our pals at the BHWT are good eggs!
