You know that old saying, ‘the straw that broke the camel’s back’? Well for 91-year-old Jean, that straw was a typewriter.
When Jean returned to her home in the Yorkshire Dales after a spell in hospital, she felt low and isolated.
So when her beloved typewriter broke too, an already difficult situation became a personal crisis.
“Everything seemed to go wrong for me,” Jean said.
Fortunately, our dedicated volunteers are skilled in all sorts of things – even fixing typewriters it seems.
