Peggy celebrates her 100th Birthday at Meyrick Rise Care Home

Peggy with her birthday cake

At the end of November, brighterkind’s Meyrick Rise Care Home threw a birthday party like no other to celebrate resident Peggy Wake turning 100 years young!

Relatives and friends from afar joined us for a glass or two of fizz, party food and a beautifully decorated birthday cake.  

Peggy’s Grandson David who travelled all the way from America especially for the occasion played ‘Happy Birthday’ on our grand piano in the restaurant and everyone sang along.

Magic Moments Club Coordinator Mia Flores helped Peggy to open a very special card - a telegram from HM Queen Elizabeth II sending her congratulations and best wishes.

Mia said “Peggy was over the moon with her card from The Queen and told us she’d had a wonderful birthday and couldn't believe she was now in her eleventh decade!”

Congratulations Peggy, from all your friends at Meyrick Rise.
