Tesco Bags of Help

We are delighted to announce The Spark has bagged £2,000 from Tesco's Bags of Help community grant scheme.

This will give a big boost to our work in communities, helping us ignite the potential of Leicester and Leicestershire children by taking professional artists, inspirational music and world class theatre performances to schools, libraries and community spaces with no cost to families.

A huge thank you to everyone who voted for The Spark with their blue tokens in Leicester Tesco stores during January and February.

The scheme awards community projects grants from carrier bag sales in Tesco stores. Bags of Help is run in partnership with environmental charity Groundwork, and sees grants awarded to thousands of local community projects every year. Since launching in 2015, it's provided more than £71 million to over 23,000 local community projects.
