A popular children’s charity has received a £100,000 grant to help make its building more accessible.
Discover, the story centre in High Street, Stratford, received the grant from the City of London Corporation’s charity, City Bridge Trust.
The money will help transform the building to “make it more accessible for those with physical and learning needs”.
Discover is an interactive creative venue which uses storytelling, movement and music to build literacy and communication skills in children.
The grant will also be used to redesign the central Story Trail area and exhibition spaces to incorporate sensory equipment so that children with disabilities will enjoy their experience more.
