Special messages from Buckingham Palace are becoming commonplace at a Yorkshire care group, with seven of its residents having all celebrated significant birthdays this year.
Freda Spencer and Irene Royston, who both live at Czajka Care Group’s Currergate Nursing Home in Steeton, celebrated their 100th birthdays in style and received a special message from the Queen. Two of their fellow residents also celebrated significant birthdays with Gwynn Thorley turning 101 years old and Laura Cordingley turning 103.
Parties, cakes and celebrations galore also took place at Czajka Care Group’s Brookfield Residential Care Home in Nab Wood, Shipley where both Joyce Brooks and Amy Atkinson celebrated their 101st birthdays. Irene Bottomley also turned 102 years old and Marjorie Carroll is looking forward to her special card from the queen in February 2020 when she will be 100.
The Queen sends a message to everyone celebrating their 100th birthday, and then again at 105 years old, and every year after that.
Konrad Czajka, managing director at Czajka Care Group, said: “All of these ladies have lived full lives and always enjoy sharing their life stories and discussing their past, which we can learn a lot from. They all lived through World War II and did their bit for our country. It has been an honour to help them celebrate their milestone birthdays and we look forward to hosting a party for Marjory’s forthcoming 100th birthday early next year.”
