200 mile round trip to Yorkshire to celebrate 100th birthday


Marjorie Fisher (Madge) turned 100 last week and celebrated by travelling to York with five friends from Smalley Hall in Derby to visit her sister Phyllis aged 95 in a Yorkshire nursing home.


The group travelled over 200 miles to enable the sisters to reunite after a long six years without seeing each other, Madge was delighted to show her sister the card she received from the queen and they spent time looking through old photographs and reminiscing about the time they both worked as bus conductors for Trent.


Hannah Froggatt, deputy manager at Smalley Hall said “It has been a pleasure to organize this trip and our staff were really happy to drive and accompany Madge and her friends on this special day”


The Ashmere group who operate Smalley Hall also have seven other care homes in Derbyshire; are making a pledge to make birthday wishes come true, Managing Director David Poxton said “It is important for us to celebrate with each and every one of our residents, if we can make it happen-we will. We go the extra mile and are passionate about person centred care”
