UKG steps in for 102nd birthday

Publisher sends beautiful personal card to mark local lady’s big day


Every birthday is special but when the celebration is marking 102 years young, that deserves a little extra something, and UK Greetings is delighted to have helped with a lovely local lady’s big day.

The creative team at the Dewsbury-based publisher designed a beautiful personal card for Blanche, and hand-delivered it to the nearby care home where she lives the day before her birthday earlier this month.

UKG’s HR manager Laura Roderick explained she’d seen a news post about a lady in a local care home, who would be celebrating her 102nd birthday without a family of her own, “so I decided some special UK Greetings’ happiness, laughter and love needed to happen”!

The centenarian loved the card and said it was “the most beautiful she has ever seen” and that she couldn’t believe she was turning 102 years old.

Blanche has seen five monarchs ruling the country and 21 prime ministers in Number 10 Downing Street, and her birth year of 1920 was when the UK’s first roller coaster, The Scenic Railway, was opened at Margate’s Dream World – it’s now listed and still going strong today, just like the birthday girl!
