Christmas is coming and Hannah is planning two projects for November and December.
Project One is collecting advent calendars and sweet treats for families at Scott House at the Freeman Hospital, Newcastle. This is a home from home for families with children who are in patients at the hospital, allowing them to be nearby at all times, but giving Mums and Dads and siblings a place to be together. Team HHH collected for The Sick Children’s Trust last year and it was such a success we are doing it again!
Details are on Hannah’s Facebook page
On Sunday 22nd October, Hannah took part in the 5km Newcastle Big Fun Run on the Town Moor. Hannah was pushing her brother Adam’s wheelchair around the course, with a little help from Mum. The whole team were wearing their pyjamas!
The course was bumpy and gravelly, and the strong wind was cold, but the team completed the course and have raised over £150 for the charity Thyroid UK .
The fundraising page is here.
A great big HHH thank you to everyone who supported us!
On August 10th, Hannah visited the RVI Newcastle to deliver the grand total of Team HHH’s Cancer Run fundraising in May.
Together, Team HHH have raised £217.56!
July’s HHH project was in support of Calvert Trust Kielder, an outdoor adventure and activity centre in Northumberland enabling people of all ages and abilities to do things they never thought they could. There’s water sports, high ropes, climbing, archery, king swing, swimming, bushcraft, abseiling and of course the zip wire.
On Saturday 8th July, helped by her cousin George and her cuddly best friend Dadda Bear, Hannah took on a nerve wracking challenge. Hannah has ASD and anxiety, and because of this anything new or challenging is extra scary to her. Despite this, she was determined to complete the challenge she had selected for herself and had been building up to for months.
It took a while for her to gather her courage, but then she climbed up Zonk’s Mountain and did the 75m zip over the burn and into the welcoming arms of Mum, Grandma, Grandpa and George. She was very proud of herself, and admitted afterwards that once she got going, it was great fun!
Thank you to Catherine, Kieran and Danielle, and everyone at Calvert Trust Kielder for all your support and help in arranging Hannah’s Zip Wire Challenge. She has raised £190 on her Just Giving page so far, with the contents of her collecting tin to come.
Thank you everyone for your support!
There is a blog post about Hannah’s challenge on the Calvert Trust Kielder blog here.
Hannah celebrated two years of her amazing project with a Beauty and the Beast tea party on Saturday 24th June, in aid of two carers charities.
Hannah, a young carer to her brother Adam, was eager to support The North Tyneside Carers Centre and Carers UK, seeing this as a perfect way to mark two years of hard work and fun. With friends and family, Hannah enjoyed scones and cakes, tea and milkshakes, crafts, arts and biscuit decorating.
Over £80 was raised – thank you!
