While working as a fundraiser at Save the Children Clare Mulley came across a note written eighty years earlier by the organisation's founder: 'the world is not ungenerous, but unimaginative, and very busy'. She has since been fascinated by Eglantyne, sleeping in her childhood nursery, rifling through her journals, and even buying her signature on eBay.
