Following London's success in securing the 2012 Olympics, Team GB 800m runner Jo Fenn was recently at Lloyd's building to present sports bursaries to six promising sporting stars from Tower Hamlets schools supported by London market businesses.

The 2005 Sports Bursary Scheme co-sponsored by Lloyd's insurer, Faraday Underwriting, promotes outstanding commitment and achievement in sport by Tower Hamlets secondary students, giving each winner £500 .

City businesses are now being urged to support the scheme. Any companies interested in sponsoring the sports bursary scheme should contact Monica Gomes of THEBP on telephone number 020 7655 0307.
