Our Amazing Person of The Week this week goes to the inspiring Frank Chester. On his 100th birthday the Worcestershire local will be opening his card from the Queen, eating cake, and working a three hour shift at his local food bank in Malvern where he volunteers 7 hours a week.
He says, ‘I don’t feel 100..usually, but my body tells me I’m not as young as I used to be’.
When asked how he still manages to volunteer at his age the centurion states, ‘I just do what I can, and when I can’t I sit down’.
Mary Williams, Frank’s Team Leader at the food bank, has nothing but praise for the selfless gentleman: ‘ He brings joy to us every time he walks through the door, he’s an example to us all that we should make the most of everyday’.
What’s Frank’s philosophy on life?
‘Just take everyday as it comes, and be grateful. I am grateful I can look after myself and I’m not a burden on anyone else’
With an attitude like that we don’t think anyone could every find you a burden Frank! Happy 100th birthday.
