Family run business M. R. King & Sons keeps DanceEast on the Move

14 May 2015


Suffolk based car dealership M. R. King & Sons has generously sponsored DanceEast for five years, keeping the Ipswich based dance charity on the move and enabling vital rural travel across the region.

To celebrate M.R. King & Sons are providing DanceEast with a brand new car, a white Volvo V40, easily recognisable by its dual branding. The car will be seen far and wide across the region as DanceEast delivers its community and artistic programmes and performances.

Julian King said “DanceEast has been able to showcase some incredible talent and we wanted to continue our partnership to be able to support this work alongside showcasing our own product with the sponsorship of a Volvo V40 for their use around the county”.

Brendan Keaney, Artistic Director & Chief Executive said “DanceEast is hugely grateful for M.R. King & Sons providing us with this support. We are incredibly proud that a lot of our work takes place in a variety of settings, like schools, hospices and residences throughout the East of England.  Having this fantastic car enables us to deliver our outreach programme – it is absolutely invaluable.  M.R. King & Sons are not only supporting the arts, they are also supporting their community and we should be very proud that we have a local business that has such a strong sense of its social responsibility.”

M.R. King & Sons is a family run business established in 1972, based at various locations in the East of England and holds franchises for Volvo, Peugeot and Suzuki.

As one of the nation’s leading dance organisations, DanceEast offers the business community an opportunity to associate their company with a success story synonymous with innovation, excellence and aspiration.
