2012Perfect Fit storiesJanet Dolan has been a leisure member at VILLAGE hotel Leeds North since the hotel opened its doors 16 years ago. Unfortunately, five and a half years ago Janet was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumour, with surgeons at the Leeds General Infirmary unable to operate due to the tumour's position on her central nervous system. The tumour caused Janet to have a stroke which weakened the right side of her body, affected the message pathway to her right foot and leg, and impeded her ability to take part in the studio classes she enjoyed attending for so many years, such as step, yoga and pilates. Such a life-changing event would usually get a person down, but Janet has shown astounding courage and continues to impress Leisure Club members with her feats on the Club's new facilities 2-3 times per week. Even when she was unable to drive for a year, Janet would get on a bus or call a taxi to bring her to the hotel, and tells us that her visits were a great source of motivation for her. She now walks with a stick and has an adapted car, utilising the disabled parking bays at the front of the hotel which she says make her visits much more manageable. She currently uses the rowing machine and treadmills in the gym, which she combines with her favourite activity of all, swimming. Once a month Janet sees Giovanni Fenu, the Leisure Club's sports masseur, who has worked on Janet's leg and foot for several years. The work Giovanni does on Janet's muscles helps to reactivate nerve endings, stretch the soft tissue and loosen Janet's hip area which is affected by the way she now walks with a stick, with Janet adding "Giovanni has been a great mentor and is a very positive person to be around." In fact, Janet firmly believes that without her continued visits to the club to mentally focus on, she would be in a wheelchair by now.Earlier this year Janet and 32 other women whose lives have been affected by brain tumours bravely shed their clothes and donned their hats to produce a 2012 calendar, the proceeds of which go to the charities Ellie's Fund and Brain Tumour Research and Support Across Yorkshire.The inspirational story ofJanet Dolan.Hundreds of people recently descended on VILLAGE hotel, Bury to take part in an incredible health and fitness event with double Olympic Gold medallist Dame Kelly Holmes - all hoping to be inspired to get more out of life with the 'Perfect Fit' fitness challenge.After an informative afternoon sampling everything that VILLAGE health and fitness has to offer, visitors were treated to a stirring talk by Dame Kelly who chatted about her early career in the army, her athletics achievements and how she is helping Britain prepare for the upcoming Olympic Games.Kelly then took the time to talk to people individually (including Niamh Nugent, pictured), pose for photographs during a book signing and conduct a junior athletics workshop which seemed to go down well with all the kids - as did the tasty chocolate medals!Photograph by Martin Stembridge you wish to support this campaign and would like to make a donation, you can pay online at or complete a cheque payable to "BTRS" and send to BTRS, Howard House, Wagon Lane, Bingley BD16 1WA.
