Inspirational 89-year-old Maisie has knitted over 450 jumpers and blankets for shelter dogs at Dogs Trust Basildon. Maisie said she has a love for both dogs and knitting. “It takes me three days to knit a blanket and one day to knit a doggy coat. It keeps me busy and often I like to knit whilst watching television. I’m delighted to be helping the four-legged residents at the center in some way.”
Maisie has already donated three times in one year. It’s a family effort too! Her family drives her to the shelter to deliver the knitted goods! “Daniel the Spaniel”(as seen in the photo below) is just one of the many she has kindly helped.
