This month, we were approached to fulfil a book printing order that needed to be delivered in time for Christmas!
There wasn’t a lot of time, but we pulled out all the stops and were so happy to have got the books printed on time!
Matt came to collect the books last Friday so that pre-ordered books could be posted out in time for Christmas!

Fudge’s Evening Adventure
Lower Farm is home to the Honeyborne family. Matt, Rachel, their daughter Olivia and their animal friends.
The idea for the story came after Olivia was treated at Alder Hey Children’s Hospital. It tells the story of Fudge and the animals she encounters on and around the family farm.
Local author, Liz O’Rourke, has written the story plus the illustrations in the book are by her husband, Simon O’Rourke. The page and cover design was done by Sarah Fountain of Fountain Creative.
All Proceeds from Book Printing to go to Charity
All proceeds from the book will go to Alder Hey Children’s Charity, in appreciation of the wonderful care Olivia received there.
The books cost £6 (including postage) and can be purchased here
The family are also gifting 270 of these printed books, to Alder Hey so that every child spending the night in hospital on Christmas Eve, will receive one as a gift.
WPG Give Stickers to Alder Hey Children this Christmas
We thought this was such a kind gesture that we also wanted to do something to bring a smile to the children having to spend Christmas in hospital, so we designed a sticker based on the story to accompany each book as a gift from WPG.
