A man who recently recovered from COVID-19 has celebrated his 100th birthday at Richard Cox House care home in Royston.
Ron Davies received 320 birthday cards: some drawn and painted by children, some hand-embroidered, and of course one from the Queen.
Royston police also made a special visit to the home to wish Ron a happy birthday, and various well-wishers from the town gave him gifts, including Louisa Antonia, who made a cake, Emma Coots, who made shortbread and cupcakes, Peter who framed his war medals and Mandy from Tesco who arranged the party food.
Ron was hospitalised with coronavirus a few weeks before his birthday, but pulled through thanks to the "amazing care" of NHS staff at Addenbrooke's Hospital.
Ron's daughter Shann Madsen said: "I would like to give special thanks to all the staff and manager Adele McCreadie at Richard Cox House for all the loving care they give their residents.
