The Setpoint London East organisation plans to use the funds to help pay towards running workshops in schools.

“Support like this makes it possible to continue our workshops,” the charity’s Sigrid Werner said.

“It’s good to get this support which is going a long way towards our goal of helping young people become inspired by science and technology.”

The charity based at the Soanes Centre in Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park in Southern Grove, Mile End, holds workshops in schools like the recent one at Shadwell’s Blue Gate Fields Infants School to introduce science, technology, engineering and maths to the youngsters in a fun way.
