Filled with heartfelt words, stunning photos, and beautiful art, Legacy of Love brings together 57 charity founders, actors, poets, artists, and photographers, each contributing a chapter explaining and celebrating their love of animals in personal words and magnificent pictures.

This beautiful book was the brainchild of Lynne Chitty who continues to work tirelessly on the project. She was  joined by wildlife artist Gary Hodges and conservationist / photographer Dave Currey to help compile and oversee the book production and publicity. The book was 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 was printed in the UK by Emmerson Press who have supported wildlife charities for over three decades. They generously donated 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. 

The timeless Dame Virginia McKenna DBE  has written the beautifully composed foreword and also has the last word in the book, with a recently written poignant poem.
