The Scottish Mail on Sunday

A heart-warming tale


We are a ‘throw-away’ society in general but there are plenty of people like us who refuse to get rid of useful things. We lived in Australia in the 1960s and brought home a pure-wool Onkaparing­a blanket. We still have it – nothing gives more warmth on a cold night.

We are 85 now and still love it. Made to last – us and the blanket! Marjorie and Alan Smith, Stafford
