The launch party was attended by David Furnish, Sam Taylor-Wood and Emily Eavis, who listened as Emilia talked about her ten-year support of the charity, of which she is patron, in gratitude for being "incredibly lucky to have been brought up in a loving, supportive family".
The actress continued: "It is of paramount importance that children grow up in families and the work of Hope And Homes For Children is making this possible for thousands of children across Central and Eastern Europe and Africa. The Hope And Homes For Children and Cowshed partnership is fantastic as it will help to transform the lives of even more vulnerable children."
As a result of the partnership 10 per cent of the retail price of Cowshed's Udderly Loved Room Candle and Bath And Shower Gel, both of which contain essential oils of ylang ylang, palmarosa and lavender, will go to help transform the lives of orphaned, abandoned and otherwise vulnerable children across the two continents.
The products will be available from February 2009 – just in time for Valentine's Day and Mother's Day – from Cowshed spas, Cowshed shops and online at www.cowshedonline.com. Other stockists will include John Lewis, Selfridges and Harvey Nichols.
