A PENSIONER from Grappenhall decided to donate his 90th birthday presents to the Alzheimer's Society.

Dennis Bingley celebrated his 90th birthday with a party at the Appleton Village Hall on last month.

Rather than birthday presents, he asked guests if they would make a donation to the Alzheimer's Society.

His wife Kathleen died of the condition a few years ago so it is a charity close to his heart.

Family and friends donated a total of £412 which Dennis handed to Ashley Pennington from the Alzheimer’s Society last week.
