Dame Barbara Kelly CBE DL LLD, Club Patron
“I have been a supporter of the Cystic Fibrosis Trust since its early days, having sadly lost two sons to cystic fibrosis: Hamish, shortly after his birth in 1961 and Jonathan in 1985 at the age of nearly 20. In those days very little was known about cystic fibrosis and I am so pleased that the knowledge, research and clinical care for people living with CF and their families has improved so much.
"Last year I was thrilled to be asked to be a Patron of the Sixty Five Roses Club Scotland and I am delighted to support the charity and to represent the Scottish CF community. When Hamish and Jony were born, the prognosis was dire and there was little support for families like us particularly in rural Scotland. It is wonderful that things are different now but we still have a long way to go before we can say that CF has been beaten.
"I would like to ask you to join with me and other members and become part of the Sixty Five Roses Club Scotland and together we can help create a life unlimited by cystic fibrosis a reality.”

“I became aware of the Cystic Fibrosis Trust through my colleague and friend Jenny Agutter. Jenny works tirelessly for the charity and through supporting her at various events I have begun to understand what living with CF means and I have been moved by the amazing stories I have heard and the inspirational people I have met.
