................ Mrs Phylis Taylerson is my inspirational person she was born a titled lady and married a army officer but she looked ordinary in her plain clothes smoking woodbine cigarettes..When they left the Army she loved animals and as their was not a RSPCA in her area she went round in a van collecting stray animals and raising funds to keep them in private kennels till she could re home them..She then went onto to raising £20,000 which was needed to get a RSPCA inspector in her area then she worked non stop for the next 30 years fund raising and helping animals .. she became a great friend of mine and we kept in touch long after i left the area till she died.I worked with her for 3 years and it was a privilege all though she soon realised i was better off doing hands on work with the animals than i was at fund raising.and so let me help the inspector instead.. I think she deserved to get a OBE or similar rather than a celebrity getting one who hasn't done a great deal..But its not up to me..
This lady is one of my all-time greatest inspirations. I have cd's of hers that I listen to in the car on long journeys. And usually my journey is shortened because I am enthralled by what she has to say. IMO, she is amazing.
Here a Video where she is introduced to an audience and speaks.
