Our friends at Dragon Hall Trust have been awarded a donation by CompTIA.

Dragon Hall

At the Computing Technology Industry Association (CompTIA) meeting in Birmingham members voted to donate to Dragon Hall

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”

  • making, coding, internet radio, robotics, 3D printing and virtual reality
