Support us

Your generous support will make a difference to children in Leicester. We know that times are difficult so now, more than ever, we want to help children live their best lives.

Why we are a charity

The Spark Arts for Children is a registered charity based in Leicester (number 1106952). This means that all the money given, raised or earned is not distributed as profit but kept and reinvested in the work that we do.

We are reliant on the continued support of our audiences, funders, business partners and donors to ensure that we can continue to develop our artistic, educational and community work to ignite the potential of all children.
