“Legacy of Love” was the brainchild of Lynne Chitty who has been working on the project for over a year. Since January 2021 she has been joined by wildlife artist Gary Hodges to help compile and oversee the book production. The book is being designed by Paul Whymant-Morris, who has over 30 years experience of working with top agencies, big name pop stars and numerous books, all designed with care and attention to detail. The book will be printed in the UK by Emmerson Press who have supported wildlife charities for over three decades. They are generously donating their printing costs, saving this project at least £8,000.
Among the treasure trove of contributors are Dame Maureen Lipman, Jonathan and Angela Scott and Pam Ayres MBE. For a full list of contributors please click here.
The timeless Virginia McKenna OBE has written the beautifully composed foreword and also has the last word in the book, with a recently written poignant poem. You can also watch her talking about Legacy of Love with her son Will Travers on the Home page.
