Mrs Lil James turned 100 on 9 July and requested donations to CLIC Sargent in lieu of birthday gifts, raising £512 for children and young people with cancer.
A loyal supporter
Mrs James has lived almost all her life in Yorkley in the Forest of Dean, and has supported CLIC Sargent ever since her niece, Margaret Harries, and her husband Rob set up the Royal Forest of Dean branch 24 years ago.
Mrs James said: "I do not need anything as I have all that I need - a great band of friends and family who all look out for me but I never thought that I would raise so much money for a very worthwhile charity."
CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager Laura Penry said: “Thank you so much for your generosity in supporting CLIC Sargent over the years and supporting the Forest of Dean branch.
“You’re so kind to donate your birthday donations to CLIC Sargent. Happy Birthday Mrs James from everyone at CLIC Sargent!"
