Lel was struck down with meningitis in April 2020. For her rehabilitation she decided to take up dancing.
Lel told us: “I have discovered dancing is not just about keeping fit. It’s great for lifting your spirit, whether it’s grief, depression or a serious illness. It has also helped with my memory.
“I hope that dance can be a great inspiration to others as it is to me.
Blessed and grateful
“I feel very blessed and grateful to have had the perfect recovery programme and I hope others who have had this disease can turn something frightening and debilitating into something good.”
