A weekly, after-school interactive storytelling club for children living in deprived areas will be run in Stratford after receiving funding support.
Discover Children’s Story Centre was awarded a three-year grant of £30,000 by BBC Children in Need for the project.
The funding will provide a range of reading and literacy activities for young people to develop their language skills, gain a sense of ownership and build positive relationships with peers.
The centre’s head of development Kathy Everett said: “This funding means we can support young people in developing their creativity, writing and reading skills.
“We’re proud to provide a space where young people can learn and expand their horizons, with the help of dedicated staff - new funding will allow us to continue this work.”
