Sue Searle: “This is my current place of work during lockdown – caring for, entertaining and generally trying to keep happy my 96-year-old mother, Florence. Before lockdown, we had carers but currently, no-one can visit us as it’s too risky. Therefore, I have undertaken the task of looking after Mum 24/7. Not a problem and I’m happy to do it if it means keeping Mum safe.”
