(Updated 5:56pm 11th August 2017)

Today (11th August)  Mother and Grandmother, Alice Roddie from Selby is celebrating her 90th Birthday, surrounded by family and friends.

As part of her celebrations she is determined to fly in a glider with her grandson Sam, as pilot.

She last flew at the age of 80, so they are looking forward to this being a regular event, every 10 years.

Her flight will take place at the Wolds Gliding Club, Pocklington tomorrow (Saturday 12th August) if the weather holds up, at about 1pm.

Having suffered with Arthritis for many years with Arthritis, Alice is determined to raise as much cash as possible for the charity Arthritis Research UK

Both of her granddaughters, Lana and Hannah, also suffer too, so you can see that this is a cause very close to all of our family.
