Winnie Blagden turns 100

Lots of people just see the negative side of social networks, but from time to time they really can help do good.

A woman who received 16,000 birthday cards from around the globe after an internet appeal went viral has turned 100.
BBC Radio Sheffield launched a Facebook campaign after learning Winnie Blagden had no surviving family.
It urged well-wishers to send cards to the centenarian, who reached the milestone age on Sunday.
A surprise party organised by the station earlier in the week saw Mrs Blagden lavished with gifts and cards.
She told the crowd at the city’s town hall she was “overwhelmed” by the response to the appeal.
