Winnie Blagden is 99 years old and will hit the century mark this Sunday.  Unfortunately, Mrs. Blagden didn’t have anyone to help her celebrate the very impressive birthday.  BBC Radio Sheffield in the U.K. heard about her and launched a Facebook campaign that reached over 6,000,000!  The results of the campaign were 16,000 birthday cards and many gifts from as far away as Singapore, Taiwan, and the United States.  Great job BBC Radio Sheffield!  Let’s all join in and wish Mrs. Blagden a very happy 100th and find a senior nearby us and help them celebrate their achievements!
