Lois who has aniridia is captain of the England Women’s Blind Cricket Team. They are currently on tour in Nepal.
Before they left, she and others were interviewed by BBC Radio 4 In Touch
The Nepalese cricket team inspired the Cricket For Change Foundation to create an English version in 2010. Their profile of the initiative says:
“One girl, Lois Turner, 17, has become a role model in the team. She is the captain and, although one of the youngest, coaches and empowers others. Lois has been invited by Clare Conor, Head of England Women’s Cricket, to speak at events. She is employed by the charity to inspire other young people with a disability to get involved with sport.”
Lois excitedly says, “This tour is something that I have dreaming about for a long time it’s an opportunity of a life time. This trip is a big stepping stone for all of us as a team and as individuals. I’ve never been so excited about anything before in my whole life.”
Best of luck to Lois and the whole team!
