Much-loved personal trainer and footballer Kelsey, 23, died after the white Renault Kangoo Maxi he was driving collided with the front of a stationary trailer which was parked in the road.

After his death his family set up the KW Foundation to continue his legacy of helping others and have raised well over £10,000 in his memory.

They’ve already used some of the cash to sponsor the new football kit of the Ise Lodge Kestrels, donated bike helmets and safety wear to Kettering Park Infant Academy and donated two football goals to Wren Spinney School.
