A woman who struggles to stand up will aim to do it 100 times before her 100th birthday in June to raise money for the hospice which cared for her dying son. Shortly after her 99th birthday, Joyce Richardson developed sepsis and had to be treated in hospital. Since then she has struggled with the use of her legs and cannot stand for any length of time. However, ahead of her milestone birthday next month, Joyce aims to stand 100 times for 10 seconds each time.
