The Cock-a-Doodle-DO! Trust
The main objective of the Cock a Doodle Do Trust is to create a greater awareness of the wonderful work carried out by some 230 Hospices around the United Kingdom and thereby maximise fundraising to help with the £800 million that it costs to run them.
A Chicken House fit for a Prince
One of the ways in which the trust works is to raise money by way of a charity garden formed in a secluded woodland glade in Gloucestershire. This will be home to a number of rare poultry breeds, housed in a copy of HRH the Prince of Wales' chicken house at Highgrove.
The intention is that in the long term the garden can be used to raise funds through charity activities and artistic retreats, as well as hopefully provide a place of reflection for everyone who knew Katherine and loved her... but this is just part of the story....
Prior to her passing Katherine said that St Peter's manage to make the hospice feel like a five star hotel and that the staff are simply wonderful, each and every one of them, and that she would like to leave the Hospice something in her will and help them in some way.
So an idea was born... By combining her passions, we are looking to create a charity garden and rare breed poultry centre as part of Katherine's desire to raise money for St Peter's and the wider hospice movement: so the Cock a Doodle do Trust was inaugurated.
Social: what's been hatching?
