Seven-year-old Tyler Scott will be getting on his push bike and peddling away to raise cash for a hospice that helped care for his cousin.

Kaylee Howard’s life was cut short at just 26 after she lost her battle with cancer in February 2012, leaving two young daughters behind.

Her tragic story saw the community of Hemel Hempstead come together to make the Bennetts End mum’s final days with her children extra special.

A fundraising effort meant that she could fulfil her wish to take her daughters to Disneyland Paris.

Now Hobbs Hill Wood pupil Tyler is planning a sponsored bike ride to raise cash for the Hospice of St Francis, where Kaylee spent her last days.

Grandmother Irene Phillips said: “I’m really, really proud of him. He is a lovely little boy. He came up with the idea by himself, he asked his mum if he could do it.”

Tyler will complete as many circuits as he can around his school playground at Peascroft Road on Saturday, October 26. Dad Dave said: “We are very proud of him.”

To sponsor Tyler visit www.justgiving.com/kihoward or text TJLS99 and the amount you wish to donate from £1 to £10 to 70070.
