Paralympic gold medallist Hannah Cockroft from Halifax is among eight people who are to be given honorary degrees by the University of Bradford later this month. She will receive a doctorate for athletic achievements.

Vice-Chancellor of the University, Professor Brian Cantor, said;

“The University of Bradford’s eight honorary graduates represent some of the very best practice in their chosen fields. They are true inspirations, not only for their work, but for their contributions to society as a whole.

"I am honoured to welcome them to the University of Bradford and hope their accomplishments inspire our graduates to strive for greatness too.”
