Certificate of Appreciation from Circus Quirkus

A huge thank you for your help this year with the Canberra Rotary Club’s 25th annual Special Children’s Festival – Circus Quirkus for the local special needs and disadvantaged children.

Please find attached your Certificate of Appreciation as our small way of saying “Thank you” for helping to make this annual event possible for the children. Your support will also help us provide invaluable funding for Foodbank and also Our Place, our homeless youth programme.  Your support truly makes a difference.

We hope that all of the happiness you have helped to spread comes back to you ten-fold.
Until next year….

blueVisions and Institute of Management help special needs and disadvantaged children through Circus Quirkus

The Rotary Club Of Canberra were the founding hosts of Circus Quirkus. Circus Quirkus has been putting smiles on the faces of thousands of special needs and disadvantaged children for the past 22 years, due to the kind generosity of local businesses and individuals.

The purpose of the event is two-fold:

Firstly, Circus Quirkus brings fun and respite into the lives of thousands of children who, through no fault of their own, miss out on so much that most of us take for granted. They come from over 60 local welfare, disability & care organizations. Circus Quirkus gives them a day they’ll never forget, with some of the world’s best performers astounding them with acrobatics, clowning, juggling, death-defying stunts and lots of comedy!

Secondly, the event raises much-needed funds for local projects. For example, this year will help Foodbank collect surplus, salvaged and donated food and distribute it to local people in need, as well as assist Our Place, a local program which provides safe accommodation, education, skills, training and work experience to local youth at risk of homelessness.

blueVisions Management and the Institute of Management sponsored 5 children for their unforgettable day.
