A mum with visual impairments from Milton Keynes has presented with a signed England football shirt after a contest run by Milton Keynes North MP Ben Everitt.
After attending an event with Google Cloud in Parliament, they provided the shirt, signed by stars including Arsenal's Bukayo Saka, on behalf of sports presenter Kelly Cates and the FA to gift to somebody in his constituency.
The local MP asked people in Milton Keynes to nominate somebody extremely deserving of the England shirt and Hannah Burgess was nominated by her sister Rachel. During lockdown, Hannah started a blog, Blind Mum Vs The World, to celebrate her visual impairment, and she now uses her platform to help and encourage children and parents who also have visual impairments.
Hannah has also gone into local schools and preschool settings, to volunteer her time to deliver training and support to staff and students to ensure visually impaired people have everything they need, and the confidence to navigate the every day.
Hannah and her guide dog Eddie joined Ben at his constituency office in Linford Wood to be presented with the signed shirt.
Ben Everitt MP commented: "It was absolutely lovely to meet Hannah and hear about the incredibly work she does supporting other visually impaired people.
"I'm so glad Rachel reached out with this nomination because Hannah is so deserving of this signed England shirt and I want to thank Google Cloud, the FA and Kelly Cates again for giving me this opportunity to spread some good will!"
