A woman has received the most birthday cards she’s ever had in the run up to turning 101.

Edna, who spent her 100th birthday in lockdown, was inundated with nearly 5,000 birthday cards from strangers after a special card was designed to send to her direct, with funds going to charity.

It’s a fact that many of us don’t want to face: with every tick of the clock, every one of us is ageing. It feels scary. But it needn’t. “Being human and living our lives is all about change, and that’s what ageing is, it’s change over time,” says Professor Julie Byles, a social gerontologist and researcher at Newcastle University. Ageing is intrinsic to the living species on this planet but how we grow old, and the factors that influence the process, are complex and unpredictable. “Ageing is universal but not uniform: it’s universal because it happens in all cells and all species, but it’s not uniform in that we don’t all go through it in the same way,” Professor Byles says.
