Two Welwyn Garden City girls are searching for a sponsor to support them on their mission to continue being the UK's youngest entrants in a robotics contest.

In the competition Beth Thomas, eight, of Pippens and Emily Duffey, eight, of Aldock, will compete in a number of challenges such as programming and a teamwork challenge, pairing up with another robot to score as high a total as possible.

The girls are looking for a local business to support them with the costs of entering the events, building the robot and also to potentially hold an event in Welwyn Hatfield in 2017.

Interested sponsors can contact Andy Thomas on 07979 615043.
