Charity details

Leukaemia Uk Organisation Ltd

Leukaemia UK was founded in 1977 by Derek Mitchell after his wife Isobel was treated for leukaemia at King's College Hospital in London. Originally named The Elimination of Leukaemia Fund, the charity supported the work of King's haematology department but grew to be able to offer grants to blood cancer specialists in hospitals across the UK. 

Over the last 40 years we have helped to make ground breaking changes to blood cancer care. Less than three decades ago, there were no beds dedicated to the care of leukaemia patients at King's and its haematology department was on the brink of closure.

Now, thanks to Leukaemia UK, there are four specialist blood cancer wards at King's, including the superb Leukaemia Treatment Suite which, fittingly, is named after our founder, Derek Mitchell.

With fond memories of our friendship from my joining the Corps of Stewards at the RFH, which led on to the many happy and fun times we shared, most particularly when Carole undertook to be my Buddy on our marvellous Tall Ship adventure on SV Tenacious. More recently less strenuous activities such as annual January visits to The Sadler's Wells! I shall miss you Carole. Love Betty.

It's difficult to believe that Carole, someone I had known for well over 40 years, has died. A lovely person. Rest in peace.

Over 40 years of friendship with Carole was one of life's blessings. With the RFH "gang" we shared countless adventures ranging from Antigua to Alderney and she leaves not only a huge gap but also a wealth of happy memories, many of which were enshrined in one of her wonderful poems. She will be much missed. Julia Ladds
