Our friends at Dragon Hall Trust have been awarded a donation by CompTIA.
As the London based charity’s funding has been cut by 60% in recent years this award comes as a very welcome boost.
James Dellow, Dragon Hall’s Youth & Innovation Manager, said:
“The donation and the recognition that goes with it means a lot to us. It will help fund a part time youth worker and CompTIA’s international profile will bring exposure for our work”
