Low Furlong Care Home Resident Receives 100 Birthday Cards from Across the Globe

A Low Furlong resident celebrated her birthday recently with a special twist.

To celebrate her 100th year, Low Furlong care home in Shipston-on-Stour threw a big party for resident Mary, where she was surrounded by friends and family, to mark this special occasion.

Mary Hunt, was treated to a large birthday cake by the home’s chef, a delicious trifle, babycham and Bucks Fizz, all of which are Mary’s favourites.

The care home reached out to people across the world to ask one small favour to make Mary’s day extra special: a birthday card to wish her well.

Mary was overwhelmed to receive 100 birthday cards, and now, Low Furlong will be working on a project to display the cards in her room as a reminder of a truly special day.

Mary’s daughter commented on the day, saying:
“It was so lovely for everyone to have gone to such effort to make mums day so special.”

Home Manager at Low Furlong, Leanne Braham, said:
“It’s important to us that we properly celebrate when one of our residents reach such a milestone. We have a ‘100 wall’ at the home and since 2015 when the home opened, we have had 11 residents celebrate birthdays of 100+. When residents reach 100, they get added to the wall of fame and their picture hangs in a gold frame.”
