The team from Wolverhampton Specsavers welcomed a very special patient into store this month to wish her happy birthday.

Thornton's chocolates

When Vera Beatrice Leary visited the store with her sister Sylvia, staff greeted her with a box of Thornton’s chocolates to celebrate her 100th birthday.

4 July 1917

Vera was born on 4 July 1917 – the same year that America entered the First World War, the Russian Revolution began and Albert Einstein published his first paper on cosmology!

Happy birthday Vera!
