A sports charity which is working with schools to improve the lives of young people from disadvantaged communities has been praised by Tower Hamlets Council.

Councillor Danny Hassell, cabinet member for children, schools, and young people, visited a charity sports project run by Greenhouse Sports at St Paul’s Way Trust School, to witness the positive effects sport can have on both the physical health and mental wellbeing of young people in the borough.
