Family comes first for 100 year old Patriarch

For those of you who don’t know me, I’m Kirsty. I handle the administration for the Leicester office, and have done so for the past 17 years. I tend to prefer a supporting background role in #TeamSellicks but this is a story I felt should be shared. I am very lucky and blessed at the age of 41, to still have the most wonderful Grandfather who has just turned 100 years old!

"Dada" as he is known to myself, his other 7 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren, has always been an inspirational patriarch in our family, frequently regaling us with tales of his eventful and interesting life.

He is such a character that the local newspaper requested an interview with this famous Centenarian! My family and I are very proud of him and hope you enjoy learning a little more about him:
