100th Birthday Visit from Lord Mayor

A picture of the telegram sent by Her Majesty the Queen.

Nancy Rushford turned 100 years old this year. Nancy received her very special telegram from Her Majesty the Queen. To add to the marvellous celebrations the Lord Mayor paid a visit to the Kensington Care Home. The Mayor brought along a delightful bouquet of flowers to present to Nancy in person. One of our residents, Edward Lawson, presented flowers to the Mayor upon her arrival.
A great day was had by all.
