'Reach' Film Screening #SVW2020

DATE: Monday 10 February 2020

TIME: 5:30pm - 6:30pm

LOCATION: The Stage @ the HUBs (Sheffield Hallam Students' Union)

As part of Student Volunteering Week, Sheffield Hallam Students' Union are proud to be screening 'Reach' a film in which a teenage rock-climber called Clare (a current Hallam student) shows what's possible when we choose to define our own limits in the face of adversity.

Reach is a film that takes you from the wards of the Children's Hospital, right out into the heart of the Peak District.

Filmed over four-years, Reach tells the story of Sheffield climber Clare, who suffered a life-altering stroke at 13 which left her unable to move anything but her left eye. The first word that she spelled out with her eye was walk. And she was soon determined to go climbing.

This film won Best Film Made in Sheffield, and came second in Best Spirit of Adventure Film at Sheffield Adventure Film Festival 2019.

Refreshments will be provided.
