Kent Messenger Maidstone - - FRONT PAGE -

They may be decades apart but a group of pupils from Sevenoaks School have helped a 102-year-old cel­e­brate her birth­day.

Vicky Lut­ton was treated to cakes, can­dles and flow­ers by the group from the Thurs­day Club, who are par­tic­i­pat­ing in the schools Vol­un­tary Ser­vice Unit’s com­mu­nity pro­gramme.

The cen­te­nar­ian, who was born in Ire­land, has been vis­it­ing the school ev­ery week since she moved to Sevenoaks from South Africa 22 years ago. She was treated to an af­ter­noon of en­ter­tain­ment and so­cial­is­ing or­gan­ised by staff and pupils.

She’s now the long­est-stand­ing mem­ber of the club and said she thinks the se­cret to her long life might be ge­netic, adding: “I treat life as a chal­lenge”.
