Sad news this week, Alfie Date, Australia’s oldest person, passed away at 110 years of age.
Alfie, the oldest person in Australia, started to knit sweaters for penguins when he was 109 years old.
The penguins had been put in danger by an oil spill at Phillip Island. The jumpers stop the penguins from poisoning themselves by licking the toxic oil off their feathers. Alfie went on to knit many jumpers for the penguins.
Even though Alfie has passed on, he has left an amazing legacy. And lots of happy penguins!
