Double Paralympic Champion Hannah Cockcroft delighted staff at our Halifax HQ by dropping in for photos and to talk about her Paralympic success.
The wheelchair racer, who stormed to Gold medals in her 100m and 200m T34 races and has been sponsored by Caravan Guard insurance for the last 4 years, has been enjoying the national limelight with appearances on the popular Channel 4 panel show “8 out of 10 cats” amongst others.
In the video interview with Caravan Guard above, Hannah says it was her emotional homecoming to Halifax which really struck a chord,
“The support has been absolutely amazing, especially when I did my homecoming in the Piece Hall – we’d had one in Leeds before that, we’d had the London parade, we’d had all these different things to celebrate how we’d done – and then we came back to the Piece Hall and I’d never seen it so full, there were thousands of people in there, it was incredible. …That moment was the only time in the entire year that I got emotional.”
