Dorina originally wanted a very different affair to Alan for her 100th celebration. She wanted more 1:1 time with her family across the week and to open her cards and telegram from the Queen in a much quieter way in her room. However, as the days went on it was lovely to see and hear her beginning to rather like the idea of a dignified lunch party and planning her cake and her surprise present of a Welsh professional harpist serenading the Garden Room in the afternoon. Very happy returns Dorina to a phenomenal lady who has so much dignity, history and kindness. You mean a great deal to many and it is a privilege to spend this day with you.
A big thank you to harpist Bethan who was wonderful and brought so much joy to Dorina and all the Residents on this special day.
