A gift from Swansea

The kind hearted woman, pictured below with our Attraction Manager Michelle Drew, is Rhona Scott from Swansea in Wales. Rhona spent around 100 hours creating this rug hook art picture of a seal using all recycled materials - shirts, sweaters and other bits of clothing, backed with denim. She and her husband Ken visited us on Sunday 9th of July 2006 to donate the fruit of her labours to The National Seal Sanctuary.

Rhona said "as the sanctuary was founded by an ex-miner from Tonypandy (Ken Jones), a gift from Swansea was a happy coincidence to keep a Welsh connection going".
