BIRTHDAY APPEAL: Can you help Ivy Watson mark her 100th birthday?

Friday 17th September 2021

A CARE HOME wants to surprise resident Ivy Watson, who is turning 100 years old, with enough birthday cards to make up the milestone number.

Barty House Nursing Home is hoping to shower Ivy with 100 birthday cards for the occasion on September 28.

Laura Tierney, the Bearsted home’s head of activities, said: “If anyone has a bit of time to spare, could they please pop a card in the post to Ivy at Barty House.

"You don’t have to buy one – you can draw it or write ‘Happy 100th birthday to Ivy’ on the back of a postcard. Your kind gesture would really make Ivy’s birthday special and let her know that people care about her.”

Please send cards, drawings or postcards to Ivy Watson, Barty House Nursing Home, Roundwell, Bearsted, Maidstone, Kent, ME14 4HN
