WOW, What an evening?

I wanted to write a blog to express how much last night meant to me, but currently there appears to be something in my eye…..

Thank you to EVERY SINGLE person who took the time to watch our cabaret - I know that some of you even got dressed up for the occasion, and what an occasion it was.

As everyone started logging on, I felt my anxiety and worry melt away as I was joined by over 130 people on the zoom call, all there to support Showtime Circus’s mission to get a new Defibrillator for our HQ in Milton Keynes.

The team of performers that had come together to create such a wonderful evening were just incredible, and I speak for all of us when I say that it sparked our passion for performing and ignited our soul. It really is a huge part of who we are. Hugest thank you has to go to Crazy Wavy Davy for battling his internet like a trouper and still delivering an incredible performance.

Everyone who donated no matter how much the amount, you have helped us potentially save a life. I don’t know about you, but for me, that is priceless.

Matt is missed every day and whilst we don’t know for sure that a defibrillator would have saved him - having the option would have definitely increased his chances. 12 people between the age of 14-34 die per week of undiagnosed heart conditions, with the first symptom often being death. It’s heartbreaking. Trust me.

I adored seeing everyone dancing along, seeing the children that I teach writing in the chat box how amazed they were, getting feedback from our apprentices about how inspired they were and seeing children and parents SMILE and laugh made my heart happy.
