Thelma Shingler, a yoga student at University College Isle of Man will be celebrating her 90th birthday on 15th December 2018.

Thelma, who has been attending the yoga class for over 25 years, says that she enjoys the class due to its obvious health benefits and also because it allows her to socialise with like-minded people.

Thelma was given a surprise birthday celebration by members of UCM management and staff, which was attended by all her classmates and who were all able to enjoy a cake made especially by the Hospitality & Catering students.

Cathy Lord, UCM Adult Continuing Education Manager said, “We would like to wish Thelma health, joy and happiness on her 90th birthday. Her enthusiasm for life and her natural desire to learn is such an inspiration to us all.”
