A WOMAN who once gave TV presenter Fred Dinenage a Kit Kat has celebrated her 100th birthday.

Lily Molloy was born in Brighton’s Baxter Street in 1920.

She used to work in The Argus canteen when Fred Dinenage was a reporter on the paper in the 1960s.

She lists handing him a Kit Kat bar as one of her claims to fame.

Lily tended to wounded soldiers who returned from Dunkirk to Brighton General Hospital during the Second World War.

She now lives in Moulsecoomb, where she held her birthday party on Saturday.

Lily’s granddaughter Lauren Gravett, 34, said: “My nan’s extremely independent and very caring. She’d do anything for anybody.

“At 100, she’s pretty amazing, she’s always out and about.”

At the party, Lily received a card of congratulations from the Queen.

Lauren said: “She was elated. We had three cakes to write out the number ‘100’, and lots of family and friends were there.

“We held it at Moulsecoomb Social Club where her late husband Michael Molloy used to be a member. It was really sentimental.”
