Birmingham super-volunteer Mary Harvey has turned 100-years-old.

Mary, who lives in Perry Common, has been volunteering for Witton Lodge Community Association for more than 25 years and is also a member of the organisation's board.

To this day she still remains active and engaged, performing reception duties at Perry Common Community Hall, delivering leaflets to homes in the community and engaging with local residents on activities like Duckling Watch.

In June, Mary led a sponsored walk and raised more than £1,300 for John Taylor Hospice.

Association Chair, Linda Hines, is a close friend of Mary and paid tribute to the centenarian's energy and spirit.

"She's incredible, an inspiration to all of us," she said.

"She just loves people and we all love her. Her enthusiasm is infectious and when she walks into a room the room really does light up. What she has done for this community, and continues to do, is absolutely amazing and we are very proud of her."

On Thursday, a birthday celebration was held for Mary with guests including Erdington MP Jack Dromey, the leader of Birmingham City Council, Cllr Ian Ward, Ward Councillor Robert Alden and Cabinet member Cllr Paulette Hamilton.

They were joined by more than 60 of Mary's closest friends from across Perry Common, Witton Lodge staff and fellow volunteers.
