Ruth flowers embodied that message perhaps better than anyone else. Ruth under her stage name of Mammy Rock was a British grandmother who became one of the most celebrated and in-demand DJs in the entire world.

She lost her husband when she was already in retirement age and for a time she seemed content to spend her remaining years living in a coastal region of Portugal with great weather and beach views. Then looking for something to do with her spare time she got involved in planning her grandson's 21st birthday party.

She found the process brought her a great deal of joy and decided to turn up to the event in a nightclub a rude bouncer who suggested that she was too old to enter the venue.

"I went to the party late. The doormen said 'Oh, I don't think you want to go in there, madam. And I said 'I rather think I do because it's my grandson's birthday'. So, I went in of course," she explained.

This was the final push she needed to set about proving that anything is possible if you put your mind to it.
