Grandmother, 89, who missed receiving Christmas cards after her friends passed ... trends now

An 89-year-old grandmother was left 'blown away' after receiving hundreds of surprise Christmas cards from strangers all over the world. 

Widower Margaret Pattison, from Leeds, West Yorkshire, said that she used to receive a hefty Christmas card pile every year, but since many of her friends have passed away she had been getting less. 

Fortunately, her granddaughter Jenny Leamey took matters into her own hands and posted a call-out on social media.

Ms Leamey, 33, posted on Facebook asking if anyone would be willing to send her grandmother a card to lift her spirits over the festive season.

To even her surprise, the pair began to receive hundreds of Christmas cards from as far as North America.  

Ms Leamey's Christmas card appeal for her grandmother said: 'I am a 33-year-old who was brought up by her grandparents, they were all I could ever wish for as parents.

'Now the roles have reversed and I am a carer for my 89-year-old disabled Nana.

'My Papa passed away a few years ago now so my partner moved in with her during Covid to look after her as she broke her hip.

'She's still here and turning 90 on January the 3rd.

'I was wondering if any of you kind people would send her a card this year?

'It would be appreciated so much and she would enjoy reading every single one.
