Croydfon author Elizabeth Williams donates book profits to Childline
A big-hearted author is donating all the profits from her latest book to charity.
Elizabeth Williams, who has served as volunteered as a Childline counsellor for 10 years, will give money raised by sales of 100 Years of Childhood Innocence to the helpline service.
The book is a collection of childhood stories spanning the last century.
Elizabeth, from Croydon, said: “I was truly loved and blessed as a child and doubly blessed as a mother and grandmother.
"Some of the accounts in the book are of my childhood, now in the last century. Other stories are from my family, children and grandchildren.
She added: "I started volunteering for Childline in May 2003 – I am passionate about Childline and believe that love for, and from, children is the greatest blessing.
"There are many children throughout the world who have neither love nor blessings and that is why Childline is so important – it is there for children when they feel they have nowhere or no one else to turn to."
Childline received more than 750 calls from Croydon children last year.
