Binman Ben Bird Presents Cake to 100 year old Dorothy


Isn’t it great to read a heartwarming story above is ITV’s reporting of the story that’s gone viral and the mobile footage of Refuse Collector Ben Bird presenting Centenian Dorothy Ballard known locally in the Kidderminster area as ‘Mercy’ with a birthday cake on her 100th Year celebration has been viewed over 4 million times.

“She Makes me Laugh Every Week”

Ben who’s done the bin collection for 8 years struck up a friendship with Mercy and made regular calls to her for chats and said “she makes me laugh every week”

When he discovered he would be working his collection on the day of her birthday he decided to make and present her with the cake he’d promised when she turned 100 years.
