Circus Starr Event

We took 50 people Circus Starr event at the Windmill Theatre, Blatchington School on a very wet day. How the children loved it – shouting, booing, clapping and cheering. It was very humbling to see other children with severe disabilities enjoying an afternoon out, so many of them just don’t get the opportunity. On leaving it was good to see so many smiles on young faces – the rain didn’t matter – something those children will live off for weeks to come.

It was a warm sunny day so lunch was outside the barn. The children then had to search the barn for hidden chocolate  before looking  for different types of leaves. Each leaf brought back was exchanged for more chocolate. Our thanks go to Mike Cameron, the woodsman.
