A care home in Urmston is appealing for people to contribute cards to help a resident celebrate a very special milestone.

Nancy Danson will turn 100 on Monday and staff and residents at De Brook Lodge are hoping to receive 100 birthday cards in time for her big day.

The home is currently around the halfway mark, but staff are urging people to get involved in a last minute push to help them achieve their ambitious target.

To mark Nancy's birthday in style, De Brook Lodge will be hosting a special birthday party, where the Mayor of Trafford will personally deliver a card from the Queen. Celebratory activities will also be happening throughout the day.

Danielle Aikenhead, the De Brook Lodge lifestyle manager, said: "Nancy has lived with us for a year and she's part of the De Brook Lodge family. She was born just down the road in Warrington and has spent most of her life in Flixton raising her four sons.

"As she gets ready to celebrate such a major milestone, we wanted to show Nancy our love and support by collecting 100 birthday wishes from far and wide. With the support of our residents and the local community, we can give Nancy a 100th birthday to remember."

To wish Nancy a happy birthday, send a card and your best wishes to Nancy's 100th Birthday, De Brook Lodge, 110 Irlam Road, Urmston, M41 6NA.
