Di was a long-standing member of the London School of Samba and passed away in November 2011 after a battle with cancer.
Di will always be remembered for her sense of fun, her wit, her style and above all her loyalty to the London School of Samba. Caroline and Mike from Morro 16 knew Di since the early days and we'd like to share some memories of her here:
Back in the early 1990s Di givin' it some welly during the Poll Tax marches.
Di givin' it socks at the celebration of her wedding to Norrie this summer
Sambista to the end!
Di, "Madrinha" of the London School of Samba, August 2011
