Joanna Turns 100 And Gets Card From The King

Plymouth resident Joanna Bryant was thrilled to receive a birthday card from King Charles and Queen Camilla when she celebrated her 100th birthday last week.

Joanna marked the occasion with a tea party at the dementia care home where she lives in St Budeaux, Plymouth.

Sarah McCaffrey, deputy manager at Butterfly Lodge, said:

“Joanna is a remarkable woman who was an accomplished pianist and self-taught artist.

“She was in her seventies when she first flew in an aeroplane, and then she went all the way to Australia to spend five weeks with her brother in Surfers’ Paradise.

“The birthday card from the King and Queen delighted her, and she was also very pleased with the three strawberry and cream sponge cakes that our clever chef Karen Worth baked for her in the shape of 100.”
