Roll up! Roll up! Circus Starr raises money for our Giggle Doctor visits
We have been selected as a charity partner for the Circus Starr autumn tour
Theodora Children’s Charity has been selected as a charity partner for the Circus Starr autumn tour. Profits from the tour will be donated to Theodora Children’s Charity to support our Giggle Doctor visits.
Circus Starr is a touring circus boasting world-class, professional artists from across the globe. It was first founded in 1987 and provides free seats for thousands of disadvantaged, disabled or vulnerable children, whilst helping to raise much needed funds for local charities. Through its unique network of partner charities and local businesses, Circus Starr provides over £1.3 million worth of free tickets to children, their families and community groups throughout the UK every year.
Michelle Crossley, Director of Circus Starr, said:
“We share Theodora Children’s Charity’s commitment to bring joy and laughter to children whose lives revolve around daunting medical tests, operations and hospital stays.
We know from touring our inclusive circus shows to many children with life limiting conditions that laughter is often the best medicine helping to build resilience and lower stress. So we are delighted to be able to support the Giggle Doctors doing their rounds providing a wonderful distraction not only for young patients, but also their anxious mums and dads and hard-working medical staff”.
We are so grateful to Circus Starr for their support and look forward to partnering with them this autumn. The tour starts on 5th September and you can see the full schedule online here
