Leicester-based accountancy firm, Torr Waterfield, has selected The Sparks Arts for Children to represent and raise money for.
The Spark Arts for Children is a busy children’s art organisation based in the LCB Depot (Leicester City Council managed workspace for creative industries), in the heart of the city of Leicester’s cultural quarter.
“We are delighted to be supported by Torr Waterfield helping us reach more children in the city and county,” said the charity’s Adel Al-Salloum.
“The arts have never been more needed for developing imagination, self-expression and creativity in our children.”
Spark has come a long way since 2003 starting as an annual children’s arts festival growing to a children’s arts organisation with a year-round multi-art form programme. Aiming to ignite the potential of children through extraordinary arts experiences
The Spark is about to open its 17th Spark Festival with 98 events taking place across Leicester 10-16 February aimed at children and their families aged 0-13 years.
The Spark gives children opportunities to immerse themselves in the arts. They offer children spaces to discover their own skills, passions and potential, as audience, participants and creators of their own work.
Over the course of the next year, Torr Waterfield will raise money through a variety of activities such as dress down days, staff cake sales and planned events. In May, it will run its annual Torr Waterfield Karting Cup where 12 teams of 4 compete in a two-hour endurance race. September is when it hosts its ‘Walking challenge’ where its team, friends and family take part in an organised walk. The company has previously walked 48 miles in two days around the Lyn peninsula in Wales & on another occasion completed the National Three Peaks in just 48 hours.
Torr Waterfield said: “We look forward to working with The Spark Arts for Children over the next year and raising as much money as we can for this fantastic charity.”
