A Spark of inspiration for children
A dairy firm is helping to pay for theatre trips for youngsters through a creative arts scheme.
Kirby & West has adopted its nearest school, King Richard III Infants, in Andrewes Street, in the West End of Leicester, as part of The Spark Children's Arts Festival.
The firm is the first to do so under a scheme launched by festival organisers.
The Spark is a registered charity and its "adopt a school'' scheme is designed to develop relationships between businesses and schools to pay for theatre trips.

Kirby & West will be supporting King Richard III Infant School by funding school trips for a year to the city's cultural venues during The Spark Festival.
Head teacher Jenny Barrett said: "The children will gain a great deal from the funded theatre trips and workshops and it's a fantastic opportunity for children to experience live theatre, as well as develop their own creative learning."
Kirby and West managing director Graham Smith said: "Opportunities offered by the festival are fantastic and we're pleased our sponsorship will allow the children to attend."
The festival takes place from May 29 until June 9, at venues across Leicester.
