Little Tyler’s 77 cycle laps in Bennett End mum Kaylee’s honour

A seven year old boy has raised around £300 in memory of his cousin by doing laps of his school playground on his bicycle.

Tyler Scott completed 77 laps at his school Hobbs Hill Wood to raise funds for the Hospice of St Francis, which looked after Bennetts End mum Kaylee Howard in her final days.

The mother to two young girls lost her battle with cancer aged just 26 in February last year. Her tragic story inspired the community to raise the funds to send her and her children on a once in a lifetime trip to Disneyland Paris - the young mum’s dying wish.

Tyler came up with the fundraising idea all by himself and completed the feat last month.

Hospice community fundraiser Andrea Grant said: “We are thrilled that a seven year old boy is so passionate about supporting the hospice in memory of his much-loved relative Kaylee.

“The money is still coming in but he’s raised around £300, which is absolutely fantastic.”
