A 100 Year Old Milly Smith Claims Bingo Keeps Her Young

Bingo proves itself, again, as the elixir of life. Milly Smith has been playing for over 30 years and can now show a telegram from the Queen congratulating her on her 100th birthday. Milly Smith has been vigorously playing bingo, trying to stay active despite her old age, which kept her out-and-about. In addition to bingo she likes completing mammoth jigsaws, like the 1000-piece one she recently got from her sons Ken and Billy.

“I asked them for a small one, but they bought me a huge 1,000 piece instead, but I try to do a bit every day when the lads aren’t around and I get some peace and quiet, said Milly, "But they do keep me active and look after me really well.”

Milly was a dedicated single mum, juggling four jobs in order to send her sons on school trips abroad. Her kindness and devotion to her sons continued throughout her whole life and Ken and Billy now do everything to keep their mother happy and active. The birthday party was carried out in Milly’s favorite bingo hall with a surprise cake, balloons and lots of smiling faces.
