A charity supporting seven year old has today been honoured by Prime Minister Theresa May for helping over 24 causes in just 18 months.
Hannah Warburton is seven years old and from Whitley Bay. Inspired by her brother Adam who has epilepsy and cerebral palsy, she has set herself a ‘Hannah’s Helping Hands’ challenge to help as many good causes as possible by picking a new charity to support each month.
Hannah’s unique project started in June 2015 and since then she has done everything from completing sponsored walks for The Alzheimer’s Society, hosting tea parties for Marie Curie and making and selling worry dolls for the Young Minds Trust. Hannah dreams up each activity herself and carefully picks the causes she dedicates so many hours to each month.
With help from her mum she documents her hard work on her blog in order to inspire other people to do good deeds too.
Hannah is the latest recipient of a Point of Light award, which recognises outstanding individual volunteers, people who are making a change in their community and inspiring others. Each day, someone, somewhere in the country is selected to receive the award to celebrate their remarkable achievements.
