Absolute legend calls in social media pals for elderly man's birthday
It's always nice to be spoiled on your birthday, but sometimes it can be a little disappointing, and we can't all have Ryan Reynolds jumping out of a cake and showering us in gifts.
As you get older, friends and family dwindle and it can be a much more lonely experience.
Thankfully there's people like Graham Griffiths in the world to help.
The barber from Melksham in Wiltshire has been cutting the hair of his client Jack every month for over three years, and tries to keep an eye on him when he can.
So, when he realised Jack was soon to turn 100, and had no-one to celebrate with, he used his social media following to get some help.
Ali Wilton volunteered to make this amazing cake, and over 100 cards and presents were posted through Graham's shop door. It really does restore your faith in humanity.
Check out the adorable look on Jack's face when Graham comes over with his cards and presents.
So as many of you will know by now, its my oldest customer, jack's 100th birthday today! An amazing milestone 💯👏🏾 he doesn't have any children and his wife sadly passed away a few years ago, so originally i posted on facebook if anyone could make him a special cake for him... that turned into anyone wanted to bring him a birthday card , could pop them into my shop for me to give him! Absolutely buzzing that he got nearly 100 cards from all over the place and from strangers around melksham, it goes to show that people aren't all bad after all! I was nervous about taking all the cards and gifts round as he is quite a quiet chap, never asks for a thing but im pleased to say he was made up! Thankyou again to Ali Wilton for the amazing cake and to each and every one of you who took time to pop him in a card to make it a special day for him! THANKYOU 😬👍🏾👏🏾this is for those that asked to see his reaction 😬This video is being represented by LADBible Group. To use or license this video please email firstname.lastname@example.org”

Major props to Graham here, and to everyone who helped make Jack's day extra special. Now he just has to wait for his letter from the Queen!
Happy belated birthday Jack!
