Christies Care welcomed over 100 local people to their free Community Day on 20th April at Trinity Park, Ipswich.

The highlight of the Community Day was a special performance from Circus Petite, tailored for people with Learning Disabilities.

Before the performance the group took part in a range of activities including balloon art, face painting and a performance from Ipswich Academy’s iDrum.

Almost 100 guests gathered to enjoy the bespoke performance by Circus Petite. Acts included Justo the Clown, jugglers, rope walking, hula-hooping, magic, fire displays and more.

Daniel Bean, co-founder of Circus Petite, said:

“We feel very fortunate to be invited by Christies Care to support such a fabulous event.

We’ve just finished another successful tour and to have this event in our final week, made the tour extra special for us.”

Christies Care’s specialist Learning Disabilities team have worked closely with the Circus to ensure the performance is appropriate and enjoyable for the audience.

Christies Care had also laid on afternoon tea for older people, as part of an ongoing commitment to combating loneliness and isolation amongst older people in the community.

Lin Barnes, Director of Christies Care said:

“We are delighted to have once again put together such a fabulous day for older people and for adults with Learning Disabilities. It’s an honour to be able to give back to the community in this way and put so many smiles on so many faces!

Our thanks go to everyone who came, to Circus Petite, Trinity Park and all the contributors who helped us to put on this event.”

    Yet again Christies Care proves how much they care about people and how pro-active they are in supporting people to lead active lives with social interaction. Lets hope that with support, this can become an annual event – Please tell other people and between us lets make it even bigger next time!
