Kaylet has been the chairperson of the Derbyshire branch of the Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research Fund since 1968. The Derbyshire branch was one of the first to be formed. Kaylet started the branch following the death of her son Andrew, who was eight years old, from Leukaemia. At that time I understand that he had a 9% chance of survival. With the same disease today he would have over 90% chance of recovery. Under Kaylet`s leadership the Derbyshire branch has raised over £1,000,000 for Leukaemia and Lymphoma research. She is constantly involved in sponsored walks, coffee mornings, cheese and wine evenings, store collections, bazaar stalls, raffles, fashion shows etc. She has a quiet way of `reeling you in` so that the fund becomes part of your life too! Despite advancing years she remains a vigorous organiser and an inspiration to her team of volunteers. I wonder how many competitors and spectators at the 2012 Olympics are alive today because of her efforts? I have no hesitation in recommending her as an example to all. I believe that people of all ages and physical ability should have the opportunity to be represented.
