In fact the Sheffield-based care home is celebrating a trio of ladies that have reached the grand old age of 100 – a record for them!
Betty Richardson (101 years-old), Lucille Burnand (100 years-old) and Val Royston (100 years-old this month) are all renowned for their positive outlook on life.
Betty Richardson, who enjoyed a long career in employment services, said: “Both my parents had a very positive attitude to life and it rubbed off on me!”
Lucille Burnand spent her life caring for others – she spent much of World War Two looking after sick children and was her parents’ carer in later life.
Val Royston spent her working life in academia – she worked in Sheffield University’s Department of Law.
Donna Pierpoint, the manager at Broomgrove Care Home, said: “It’s not every day we have the pleasure of three ladies that have reached such amazing age. They all have pin-sharp memories which is quite amazing to say they were all born before the end of World War One and have all lived such long and well meaning lives.”
