Five times Paralympic champion, Hannah Cockroft MBE is delighted to welcome a new sponsor to her team, having just agreed a partnership with Yorkshire care provider, Welcome Independent Living.
The company responded to a television interview in which Hannah spoke of how difficult it was, as a disabled athlete, to find continuous sponsorship and be able to fund her training to maintain her position at the top of her sport.
As a company whose business is all about supporting people, Welcome Independent Living MD, Mark Coup said “Welcome Independent Living are extremely honoured to be working with Hannah Cockroft MBE and her team at 17 Management. Not only do we share the same dedication and Yorkshire grit to achieve our best under complex, and often financially challenging circumstances, we are both immensely proud to be at the forefront promoting our wonderful communities in the hills and valleys of Calderdale. We genuinely care.”
Hannah said ”I am so grateful for the support offered by Welcome Independent Living, my sport is becoming more and more competitive and it is only with the financial assistance from such great companies that I will be able to maintain my place on top of the podium”
Having returned from the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games with three gold medals, Hannah has just returned to winter training in preparation for the 2017 IPC Athletics World Championships taking place in the London stadium that holds many happy memories for Hannah, “I won two Paralympic golds in London and I am hoping to return to the stadium in 2017 to win more World titles for all my sponsors and supporters.”
