My Treasure – Paula Hutchinson
"A Tortoise like no one else's"
‘I got this toy as a birthday present in 1950 when I was three years old. I was all excited because no-one else had one like it. It was given to me by a friend of my Mother, who worked in a shop in Coleraine, but I think she must have got this in Belfast. Everyone else was envious so I had to keep an eye out’.
Story written by Paula Hutchinson from Coleraine and member of Age Concern, (Coleraine).
