On 23rd July, Hannah took part in a muddy assault course (Clarty Bairns) with local family support group SPARCS https://www.sparcsne.com/. She has been collecting sponsorship money to help the group, who arrange after school and holiday activities for children with autism and related conditions in North Tyneside.
It was very hot and the course was tricky but Hannah persevered and got all the way around in approximately an hour. There was plenty of mud and water, which Hannah enjoyed immensely. She wasn’t so keen on the steep slopes and the very high walls to climb.
Thank you to Louise and everyone at SPARCS for welcoming Hannah on this challenging but fun day!
