Thanks to everyone who came along to our World Circus Day event in Ipswich on Saturday 18th April. A great day and lots of fun! Very impressed with everyone who ‘had-a-go’ at various circus skills in our circus area from juggling, diablo, poi and even the scary stilts! Saffron was also on hand offering careers advice to those who popped along and was busy with Mums and Dads whilst Chris did a magic show for the children.
A massive thank you from #TeamCircus to our Circus partners for helping us out with our activities, including; Chris Mayne from Chris Maynes World of Circus (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Chris-Maynes-World-of-Magic/353711411363017?fref=ts) , Steff Evans from Steff and Nonsense (https://www.facebook.com/steffandnonsense?fref=ts) & face painters Kerry Root and Carole Doe.
We had a mini tombola on the go raising money for ‘Families in Need’ a local charity helping families in Ipswich to access food banks which we are donating to FIND to help them with current project running costs. Maureen Reynel MBE, Director and Founder of FIND said:
“FIND helps families and individuals when circumstances leave them having to JUGGLE resources whilst walking a TIGHTROPE of desperation. FIND often FACE PAINTS sad faces with a smile and having CAREER CIRCUS support the charity through this great event will help us continue to provide a SAFETY NET to those in need.”
Congratulations to Rachel – our newest member of the Career Circus ‘Events Crew’ for organising this successful and fun event and already we are looking forward to next years event and have some ideas up our sleeve on what we might do! Location and details of the event will be published nearer the time. So keep checking back to our website ‘Events’ page for details or sign up to our Career Circus newsletter to get the latest news on what we are up to and upcoming events.
