A model railway club, a basketball team and a support group for young Roma refugees are among the projects to be supported by London City Airport’s 30th anniversary fund.

The Royal Docks airport has announced the 15 charities and community organisations in east London that will receive a share of £30,000.

The projects - eight of which are in Newham - were selected from 75 applicants and will each receive a grant of between £300 and £3,000.

Other organisations to receive money include the Royal Docks Learning and Activity Centre, which will purchase equipment for its community cafe, and a programme for young people not in education, employment or training that will see them work with architects to build a community space.

The airport’s CEO, Declan Collier, called the recipients “determined and varied” and said it would be “a useful funding boost”.
