Working from sketches and photographs, ninety-two-year-old, Margaret Seaman has knitted a collection of works inspired by the landscape, architecture and people at Sandringham to raise money for projects at Norfolk’s three NHS hospitals.
The knitted version of Sandringham House with its intricate architecture, chimneys, and windows, measures 5.5m (18ft) by 1.8m (6ft). Passionate about knitting Margaret has concentrated her efforts on completing the “woolly wonders” of the Estate over the last year whilst shielding at her home in Norfolk during the Pandemic.
Margaret regularly supports local causes through her knitting and recently has been fundraising for projects including the Boudicca Breast Cancer Appeal at the Norfolk and Norwich Hospital, which aims to raise money for a dedicated breast cancer unit on site, a maternity bereavement suite at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital; and the ‘Raise a Rainbow’ Appeal, a community improvement.
