Once we reach the age 60 or 65, we all look forward to retirement and living a stress free life. But that is not the plan for David Flucker, from Scotland’s Edinburgh, who is 100-year-old. He still works three days a week in a charity shop.

Instead of retiring or taking a break, Flucker – who loves his job – still volunteers at the charity shop by counting jigsaw pieces, steaming clothes, mending toy and sometimes chit-chatting with his customers.

On 22 June, when the centenarian turned 100, the St Columba’s Hospica Care store dedicated a window display on his birthday showcasing a few glimpses of his life.

Shared on Facebook, the post shows how Flucker has become an inspiration for many around the world. The store put out a post on the official page of Ocean Terminal Shopping Centre where Flucker’s workspace is located.

“David Flucker, a very inspirational volunteer at the St Columba’s Hospice Care shop, is celebrating his 100th birthday on 22 June and the store is marking this occasion with a window display that tells of his life over the last 100 years!” the post read.
