Gifts to support our work


We are so excited to be able to share Henry Hedgehog’s Riverside Adventures with you. This beautifully illustrated story book, written and illustrated by successful artist Caroline Mills, especially to support ARK, is set by the River Kennet and would make a perfect gift for the small people in your life. 


Henry Hedgehog’s Riverside Adventures
Written and Illustrated by Caroline Mills



Caroline Mills began creating Henry Hedgehog’s Riverside Adventures two years ago, and the Corona Virus lockdown of Spring 2020 gave her the opportunity to finish it. This wonderful book follows Henry Hedgehog in his adventures in a chalk stream and all the friends he meets along the way.

Caroline’s grandchildren live by the River Kennet and attend the local school and have enjoyed many ARK visits to their school. Caroline was thrilled to see her grandchildren’s love of the river and its wildlife inspired by ARK, she wanted to support us with the donations from the book, which is set in a chalk stream environment much like the River Kennet.

Caroline has already donated over £2,500 (and counting!) to ARK, giving books to friends and family in return for donations via her justgiving page.  Because Caroline has generously funded the printing costs herself, every penny of her fundraising has gone directly to ARK. 

You can order the book from our website HERE. All profits will go to Action for the River Kennet.
