Help needed by chickens

Pressbox (Press Release) -
I have recently started Britain's first and only chicken rescue centre, WHICH IS NOTHING TO DO WITH ANY ANIMAL RIGHTS GROUPS OR ANIMAL LIBERATION. The Chicken Rescue Centre was set up as a hobby in 1998 by myself (Martin Hudspeth) and in November 1999 was awarded a Princes Trust grant to run the centre full time. In November 2000 we also received a donation from Sir Paul McCartney. The Chicken Rescue Centre is a centre dedicated to the rehabilitation of intensively farmed hens to the free range system as well as being a haven for peoples pet chickens that they can no longer look after for one reason or other.
We go around the country collecting the pet chickens that we take in. Due to a 40 foot German lorry pulling out and hitting the car on the way to Alverchurch to pick up some unwanted cockerels, damaging the shocks, tracking rods, steering rack and almost blowing the engine. Because The Chicken Rescue Centre is a non-profit making origination, which is soon going to be a charity, we are just making ends meet and rely on the sale of the eggs and public donations.
This is where we need your help…if you can help out in any way, we are needing either sponsorship to help pay for a new car/van or a donation of one the practicality is more important than age or looks. Please contact me and in exchange you will get a lot of free advertising both through the local, national and international media coverage and sponsorship boards on the sides and back of the vehicle.
If you require more information on this project please contact myself on (01455) 450654 or (07552) 147937 or for more information on The Chicken Rescue Centre please look at our web site www.chickenrescue.org.uk or http://news.bbc.co.uk/hi/english/uk/newsid_1216000/1216870.stm
