Repairing clothes for 70 years and still going strong

The story of Uncle Lee touches my heart. At 13, Uncle Lee originally started learning from his Dad how to repair clothes, but 2 1/2 years on, he was training to become an apprentice electrician when his Dad died from an accident, and destiny took him on a different path. At 16, being the eldest child in the family he suddenly found himself having to take on the responsibility of looking after 6 siblings and his Mum. And so he took on his Dad's little alleyway stall. Now at 84, he is still working and feels proud to have been able to raise a family of a son and two daughters. The amazing story of our old generation.
