Winnie Cumming’s work in Childcare

Winnie worked at the Thorngrove Home which cared for children awaiting adoption or fostering. There were toddlers there and a nursery. She had to wear a uniform of white caps and collar. She later worked at Forresterhill Hospital in Aberdeen in the Special Care Baby Unit. Then she became a home help for 26 years.

Thorngrove is now a care home and supported housing unit.
