100 Years young

Thanet 100th Birthday

Kathleen, one of our customers at Napleton Court in Ramsgate

 in Kent recently celebrated her milestone 100th birthday with a party at the scheme. Fellow residents and employees commemorated the occasion with birthday cake and refreshments. 

Kathleen had been raised by Barnardo’s and told that she was born on 24 June. At the age of 60 she applied for her first passport and found out that she had surprisingly been born on 7 June instead. She is grateful to Barnardo’s for all their help in supporting her through her formative years, she says she had a happy childhood and now has an ever growing family of her own. Having received her card from the Queen, she is now a member of the prestigious 100 club. Happy birthday to an active and loved member of the community in Ramsgate and beyond!
