Lynsey Smith, administrator at Blenheim House said: “This morning Millie got a letter from Clacton MP Giles Watling which was nice.

“She had a card arrive from Pennsylvania, America, yesterday and had others from the Isle of Wight, Ireland, Norwich, Norfolk and Leicester.

“A lot of them were personalised and a few came from nurseries with cute handprints, a lovely touch.”
