A DARE-devil great-great grandmother who has enjoyed abseiling, white water rafting and two balloon flights has celebrated turning 100.

Madeline Hill - known as Maddie - resides at Dolanog Residential Care Home in Rhyl.

She celebrated turning the milestone on Tuesday, June 11 with friends and family, including her daughters.

Maddie had a barbecue on Saturday with her family to raise money ahead of Rhyl's Race for Life and on Sunday, June 9, took part in the race; 16 took part altogether and staff members pushed residents in their wheelchairs around the 5k route. Maddie, who raised £122, made her own way past the finish line.

Team Dolanog as a whole raised more than £600 for Cancer Research UK.

On the day of her birthday, a high tea was enjoyed as well as a visit from the mayor.

Maddie is originally from Bolton. She has six children and her late husband, Bert, was a former policeman.
