Cirque du Y – The fundraiser with a twist

Our first major fundraising event, ‘Cirque Du Y’ was a huge success raising over £10,000 for The Y.

Our Circus themed bonanza provided comedy, tricks and arts that would make the Big Top proud, elegant and sassy burlesque style dancing, and live musics sets to dance the night away. We also featured a charity auction with some amazing prizes, popcorn, candyfloss and cakepops. We provided a buffet for all our guests

We could not have done it without amazing support from Gallagher who inspired us and became the headline supporter. We even had live music featuring Gallagher’s own Andrew Franks of Fourteen Down on vocals.

Thank you must also go to supporters NEXT, Westerby Group and RSM UK.

We also welcomed Stocks Taylor Benson, Pure Homecare, Obsidian Tax, trustees of The Y and some of Leicester’s fabulous community.

Entertainment was provided by SkyTribe Dance Studios and Foolhardy Circus and we enjoyed live music from Kevin Hewick, Fourteen Down, Hard Lines and
The Veneers. Thank you so much for taking part and performing at our fundraiser!

Thanks to Amye (Midnight Baker13) for the cakepop centre pieces and for your help on the night.

Thanks to Asda (Oadby) and MOD Pizza for a splendid buffet.
