Pamela to welcome Limavady school boy to the UTV Life sofa thumbnailHayden at the Ariwaves show recently, with Red Arrow 10 Mike Ling.

A SPACE-mad Limavady school boy will be joining Pamela Ballantine in her new studio for UTV Life this Friday, September 15.
Seven year old Hayden Geraghty, who is autistic and has ADHD, discovered a passion for space which has vastly improved his concentration and communication skills.
He will be joined on the sofa by Dr Niamh Shaw, Irish scientist, engineer and space explorer who made contact with him through social media, and just last month she took one of his much-loved space paintings with her on a weightless rocket flight to Russia, much to his delight.
Hayden's mum Caroline told the Northern Constitution: "We are on the sofa talking to pamela along with Dr Niamh Shaw, its all about her work in STEM and about Hayden's passion for space and all the astronauts he's met, also his dream of going to Mars as an ESA astronaut, we will be heading over to ESA in the Netherlands next month for Hayden to meet more astronsuts and see all the fascinating space work they do.
