102nd Celebrations For Local Care Home Resident

Celebrations have been in full swing at Boroughbridge Manor, as one of its residents celebrated her 102nd birthday in style.

Mary Findlay was joined by staff, relatives, friends and other residents. With social distancing guidelines in place, Mary was able to see her family through the conservatory doors and was very happy to see them. They all celebrated with smiles and lots of laughter. The birthday girl, Mary and other residents enjoyed a special home-made birthday cake made by the home’s chef.

Mary is a lively, happy lady who deserves this celebration. She thoroughly enjoyed her day and was very happy to have received so many cards!! She didn’t know what to do with them all. We have the most generous colleagues, community and friends and would like to say a massive thank you to all that helped Mary celebrate her day in style. Mary has received a whopping 102 Birthday cards - You are all amazing and we seriously can’t thank you all enough!
