The Repair Shop at Christmas

Repair Shop

Repair Shop

Our friends in the British Polio Fellowship let us know that their member, Maureen, will be on The Repair Shop Christmas Special on BBC One at 7pm on Christmas Eve. See here for more.

Polio survivor Maureen took her mechanical walking Susie doll to the barn, which she had received as a child when suffering from polio. Now 70 years later and living with the effects of Post Polio Syndrome, Maureen looks to get the doll repaired.

It promises to be an especially moving episode and an excellent opportunity, on both sides of the water, to have more awareness in the media of the challenges of living with Polio and the effects of PPS.
