Dorothy celebrates 100th birthday with surprise visitor

Rugby Editorial 24th Jan, 2019   0

A SURPRISE visitor helped a Rugby woman celebrate her 100th birthday.

Dorothy Pails, a tenant at Rugby Borough Council’s independent living complex at Stacey Court, was paid a visit by Mayor Tom Mahoney.

During the centenary celebrations on Thursday (January 17), Coun Mahoney presented Dorothy with a birthday card – along with a card, flowers and a £100 Marks & Spencer voucher from the council’s independent living team.

The milestone was also marked with the presentation of a Certificate of Recognition to Dorothy, a tribute to the role she plays in the Stacey Court community.

In addition to chairing the council-owned complex’s community room committee, Dorothy organises fund-raising raffles, takes part in chair yoga sessions and calls the numbers for the community room’s bingo.

Coun Mahoney said: “Dorothy’s a real inspiration and, with her quick wit and sense of humour, it’s no surprise she’s much-loved by everyone who lives at Stacey Court.

“It was a pleasure to pay her a visit and wish her a happy birthday, and meet so many of her family and friends.”
