Havering youngsters sign up for free maths tuition at Harold Hill church

Havering youngsters are set to be given a massive boost in maths thanks to a new church.

More than 70 school children, aged six to 16 signed up for free maths tuition being offered by The Redeemed Christian Church of God based at the Myplace Centre in Dagnam Park Drive, Harold Hill.

Sade Bright, who runs the classes with her husband, Pastor Gbola Bright said: “We are really pleased because its the first project of its kind in the area and we really want to help the local community.”

The project was officially launched last week by Havering Mayor Cllr Lynden Thorpe and classes start on Wednesday September 19.

Former maths teacher, Pastor Bright came up with the idea of offering the free maths tuition to children in the community as part of the opening of the church in July.
