Pasties man to sponsor school

A multi-millionaire meat magnate is due to sponsor his second academy.

David Samworth, chairman of Samworth Brothers, the food business that makes Ginster pasties, will joint-sponsor an academy, with the Anglican Church, to replace New college, Leicester.

The governing body of New college, in special measures since 2003, was disbanded last month and replaced with a council-appointed executive board in a last-ditch rescue attempt.
