Wendy Sayers’ lockdown surprise

Wendy told us “Winifred was a lockdown surprise. We discovered her in a trunk while we were all shut away at home. She was in a sorry state. Her traditional Welsh clothes needed a wash and mend, but there was no moth damage. Her face was stained, her fingers and toes were broken and her limbs were very loose. She would not have survived much longer. She had been asleep for a long, long time: she had belonged to a family of five girls living in North Wales in Victorian times; she is at least 120 years old. At Leith Toy Hospital, Winifred has had a facial, a manicure and pedicure, and orthopaedic surgery, and now she is ready for another hundred years.”
