Newark Children of Courage Awards

In March, Aarsleff Ground Engineering sponsored a table at the ‘Children of Courage Awards’ in Newark. We were very fortunate to be joined by award winner Ellie Roberts and her parents.

Year 7 student Ellie Roberts, from the Sir William Robertson Academy, is an exceptionally caring and hard working young person. She spends a long time helping her mum in caring for her younger sister who has a rare illness. Ellie’s support has been crucial in ensuring that her sister is well looked after. Throughout all of this, Ellie attends school every day, even when she has been caring throughout the night, and maintains a cheerful disposition. The award received by Ellie demonstrates her bravery and resilience.

After hearing about her extraordinary story, Aarsleff wanted to give that bit extra! Aarsleff’s Business and HR Manager Heather Jones arranged a special day out for Ellie and her family to Peppa Pig World, located at Paultons Park Theme Park in Hampshire. We spoke with Ellie’s mum Claire after their family day out:

“It was busy but the staff there were great. We arrived early and I managed to get an exit pass for Bethany (and so the rest of us). It is a disability pass that allowed us to queue jump and go straight up to the exit with minimal waiting! It was just brilliant for Beth as there was no way she could have coped with waiting in those queues at all. We were only allowed one jump per ride but suited us just fine and so we were able to do a lot of the rest of the park too, as well as Peppa World, including some of the big rides! I’m too old for that, but Ellie and Beth were fine on them. We ended up with an official Peppa photo too! So all in all, a successful day out. Thank you so much! This was the first time we had attempted a ‘big theme park!’ And the rest of the holiday was great too, no hospitals, plenty of seizures, but nothing we couldn’t handle. Thank you again.”
