When Limelight Occasions reached out to tell the story of the their fabulous seamstress, Rita, we just had to share. Spreading a little positivity at this difficult time…
Rita, a seamstress at Limelight Occasions in West Yorkshire, celebrated her 70th birthday last month (doesn’t she look wonderful?!) Instead of celebrating as planned, with her little grandson and family who live in Poland, she spent her birthday in lockdown, using her seamstressing skills to help the NHS.
The Limelight sewing room is now a hive of activity again as she makes countless specialist masks, scrubs and laundry bags for our amazing nurses and doctors.
Having recently battled a serious health issue herself, Rita has now bounced back stronger than ever, and walks miles and miles each week, and practises yoga.
The team at Limelight Occasions said:
The way she has used her spirit, determination and boundless energy to help others during this crisis is an example to us all and everyone at Limelight just wanted to let her know how proud we are of her!
How lovely! Well don Rita.
