Village fete delivers funding boost for disabled Hannah

By timesecholife on in All News, Community News

A DISABLED woman whose care funding was slashed has received a major boost from organisers of a village fete.

Hannah Morris, who suffers from cerebral palsy, was told a grant to pay for her life skills programme would be dramatically reduced this year.

But the 24-year-old, who lives in Blythe Bridge, was this week named among the beneficiaries of last year’s Forsbrook parish fete.

And the money means Hannah, who is also on the autism spectrum, can continue twice weekly educational visits to a community farm which helps her overcome her learning disabilities.

Hannah’s younger sister Natasha, aged 19, wrote to the parish fete committee, organised by Forsbrook parish council, when her family received news that payments to fund her own care, made by the Health and Social Care Trust, were to be cut.
