Contract hire and vehicle leasing specialist B&B Vehicle Contracts is helping Sheffield Theatres to reach potential audiences in the community and schools.

Chesterfield-based B&B, which operates across South Yorkshire and Derbyshire, has given the theatre one of its new vans for the year.

The van will be used to transport props for community performances and, once its back doors are open, can even be used as a miniature performance area.

Sheffield Theatres’ creative producer Andrew Loretto said: “We are delighted to be working with B&B Vehicle Contracts and want to thank them for recognising and supporting the work we do both at Sheffield Theatres and across the city.

“The vehicle will make a big difference to helping us realise our plans to work with artists, communities and spaces throughout the greater Sheffield area, and will also help staff working on Crucible Theatre productions.

B&B director, Steve Barker, from of Whirlow, Sheffield, added: “As a family, we’ve always had a natural affinity with the theatre.

“It’s the first time we’ve been involved in this sort of project and we’re delighted with the way it’s working out.

“It’s the company’s way of giving something back to the city where we do much of our vehicle leasing and contract work.”

B&B Vehicle Contracts supplies cars and vans to local and national companies and private individuals.
