Once we reach the age of 60 or 65, we all look forward to retirement and a stress-free life. But that is not the plan for David Flucker, of Edinburgh, Scotland, who is 100 years old. He still works at a thrift store three days a week.
Rather than retiring or taking a break, Flucker — who loves his job — still volunteers at the charity shop, counting puzzle pieces, steaming clothes, repairing toys, and occasionally chatting with his customers.
On June 22, as the centenarian turned 100, the Hospica Care store in St. Columba’s dedicated a window to a few glimpses of his life on his birthday.
The post, shared on Facebook, shows how Flucker has become an inspiration to many around the world. The store posted a notice on the official Ocean Terminal Shopping Center page where Flucker’s workspace is located.
“David Flucker, a very inspiring volunteer at St Columba’s Hospice Care store, will be celebrating his 100th birthday on June 22 and the store is marking the occasion with a showcase that tells of his life over the past 100 years!” read the message.
