A woman from Amersham is celebrating her 100th birthday.

Freda Campbell, a long-standing resident at the town’s Ambient’s the Croft care home, celebrated her milestone birthday on October 1 – which is also the 30th anniversary of the United Nations International Day of Older Persons.

To celebrate the birthday Freda’s friends and family surprised her with a video wishing her well on her day.

Ambient Support provides care and support for the elderly in a number of care settings, and the team at the Croft went above and beyond to create a 100th birthday celebration video for Freda.

The video features black and white photographs of Freda as a little girl growing up and getting married, to heart-felt messages from three generations of her family.

Sarah Hill, Deputy Manager at The Croft who led the video project said: “Freda is an incredibly special and much-loved lady and we really wanted to her to have the 100th birthday she deserves.

"In these restricting times, we needed to find a creative way to help Freda and her family celebrate, whilst staying safe.

“The final edit is brilliant- we can’t wait to see Freda’s face when we play it, I’m sure we’ll all be reaching for the tissues when we watch it together on her big day!

Louise Foyle-York, Manager at The Croft says: “Freda is a wonderful member of our Ambient home here at The Croft and we wanted to show her just how much she means, not just to her family, but to all of us here too.

“Sarah’s specialised skills and her communication with the family have enabled the event to be exceptionally special and unforgettable.

“The entire team’s commitment really shines through.”

Alongside the video, the team at Ambient has organised a special ‘Buckingham Palace’ birthday drive-by where Freda will get to see her family in person from a safe and monitored distance.

They are also planning a private screening of the video along with birthday cake and games in a specially decorated lounge.

Freda will wear a tiara and be ‘Queen for the day’.
