Story telling with Ruffle the rail dog

Meet Rachel, local author and illustrator

Ruffle ‘lends a paw’ to The Baldwin Charity Trust!

Ruffle and Rachel were proud to be asked by local Leicstershire charity, The Baldwin Trust, to help raise funds for their new narrow boat, Halseyon Days.

The Baldwin Charity have adapted canal boats so that they can take people with disabilities and those in wheelchairs together with their carers/friends/families for trips along the rivers and canals of Leicestershire.

The charity approached Rachel and asked if she could create their mascot – Baldwin Bear – and that Baldwin could meet Ruffle for an adventure on a trip along the canal.  The resulting bespoke story and activity book created by Rachel, The Adventures of Ruffle and Baldwin, will be used by the charity on their boats to help raise funds for another narrow boat, Halseyon Days (named after the founder of the charity, Bert Halsey).
