Henrietta Caledon’s Book

In this new series, we interview individuals who have found inventive ways to support our work. This week, we are interviewing Henrietta Caledon, who has written a charming Christmas children’s book to help young readers understand the ripple effects of the Covid-19 pandemic. A proportion of the proceeds from the book will be donated to Hope and Homes for Children – providing vital support for children and families whose lives have been impacted by Covid19.

Why are you supporting Hope and Homes for Children?

I went to a fund raising event as a guest and I thought that it sounded like a very worthy cause. I believe that giving children the best possible start in life is of paramount importance.

How are you raising money for Hope and Homes for Children?

I wrote and illustrated a children’s book during lockdown. The pandemic has been a very confusing time for children, and the book is about a robin redbreast with ideas to help manage a Covid-19 Christmas. It is called ‘Robin’s Covid-20 Christmas,’ and it is available on Amazon. A proportion of the proceeds will be donated to Hope

and Homes for Children.

What does Hope and Homes for Children mean to you?

It means a lot to me. Every child that is moved to a family environment or reunited with their own family as opposed to being in an orphanage is a great success.
