The Halifax-based caravan insurance specialist, Caravan Guard, recently handed over £1,000 to five time Paralympic champion Hannah Cockcroft MBE

The company's sponsorship cheque marks 10 years of supporting Hannah in her Paralympian journey. Ten time world champion, Hannah, visited the Caravan Guard offices to meet staff and their children. 

She shared her experiences on appearing on the TV show, Stand Up To Cancer Great British Bake Off. And the athlete shared how she is getting ready for the 2020 Paralympics in Tokyo. 

Hannah uses the sponsorship money to help pay for her racing wheelchair, new tyres, wheels and other essential equipment.

She said of her sponsors:

"I'm so lucky to have had Caravan Guard's support for the last 11 years," said Hannah. "They've been with me since day one, when we were fundraising for my first racing chair, and they've been over every bump with me since. 

"I can't do what I do without my amazing sponsors, and after losing four in the past year, it means more than ever to me that Caravan Guard have come with me this far."

Caravan Guard's Laura Wilby said: 

 "She's such an inspiration for so many young people for achieving her dreams and the children were so excited to meet her and actually hold three Paralympic gold medals." 

Hannah Cockroft answered questions about her wheelchair, how she trains and the speeds she achieves when racing.
