A 100-year-old woman has celebrated her centenary with bucks fizz and old songs.
Doris Kaylor was born on July 1, 1916 in Poplar, east London, and residents and members of staff at the Faringdon Lodge care home, Harold Hill, joined together for a glass of bubbly to mark her life as she turned 100 last week.
She and her friends also shared the mic with a professional singer, singing along to old tunes.
Having lived through two world wars, Doris, who never married and has no children, worked for the Bank of England in London before moving to Romford.
She joined the care home in November 2015.
Manager Laura Hummerston, who described Doris as still very fit and active in the home, said it was a lovely birthday party.
“She likes being pampered, having her nails and hair done. She likes helping in the kitchen with washing and drying up,” she added.
