Rainham woman, Trixie marks 100th with charity gifts
A Rainham woman has celebrated her 100th birthday by raising �1,000 for charity.
Beatrice “Trixie” Anderson marked her milestone birthday at the Top Meadow Golf Club in Upminster this month with 100 friends and family.
Trixie was born in Poplar and moved to Rainham in 1936 with her husband Bert. He died in 1994 from cancer so she decided to raise money for Cancer Research in his memory.
She also gave money to St Francis Hospice, Macmillan Nurses, NSPCC and Juvenile Diabetes.
Her daughter Christine Larner said: “In addition to the amazing cards, gifts and flowers mum received, �1,000 was raised for various charities as she requested that guests give money to charity rather than gifts for herself.”
