Hannah Cockroft MBE got a heroes welcome when she visited a business in the Calder Valley to share her Paralympic experiences.

Hannah went to Thomson Reuters in Cragg Vale to spend time with the company’s staff and pupils from Calder High School. During the visit, she discussed her aims for the next four-year Paralympic cycle.

“London 2012 was an incredible year for me where my dreams came true following years of hard work,” said Hannah. “It has been fantastic to visit the team at Thomson Reuters and they are a company whose values and hard work ethic is very impressive.”

As well as taking pictures with her adoring audience, Hannah also let them hold one of the gold medals she won at London 2012.

Miles Hutchinson, director of UK Legal Content Operations at Thomson Reuters, said “It was a real pleasure for everyone to meet Hannah and talk about her many achievements, and we all wish her the best of luck in the upcoming Paralympic grand prix events.”
