100 year old celebrates Birthday by helping others

When Mrs Mary Owen   celebrated her 100th Birthday instead of gifts she asked family and friends for donations in aid of her  two favourite charities . Mrs Owen who was born in Corwen ,   lived alone until 3 years ago when she moved to live with her daughter at Ruthin but also receives  a lot of support and care from her son Richard and his family who live in Towyn . Recently Mrs Owen  presented two cheques – one to Lindsey Thomas of St Kentigern Hospice and the  other to Margaret Williams of Waen outreach Day Care. Mrs Owen said “ I am so delighted to help  such worthy causes – St Kentigern Hospice helps so many people in our community at the most difficult times of their life and have to raise millions of pounds every year. For last three years I have attended Waen Outreach Day Care –  I have a wonderful day each week , painting with the artist in residence, bread making  to name just two things –  Waen Outreach do not receive a penny from  Denbighshire County Council and have to raise over £9,000 a year to care for people like myself and their families.. they desperately need our support
