Jump for Joy with the Zip Zap Circus

Wow! what a show the Zip Zap circus put on for our Sisanda Fundraiser and Fun Day, we had an extremely successful and enjoyable day. With the help of all those generous people who were kind enough to sponsor tickets we took 60 very excitable children from Tambo Village and another 60 wonderful children from Westlake as well as another 15 children from Reach for a Dream on a very adventurous day out. HCI, one of our major sponsors, also arranged for an additional 85 children from a primary school in Gugulethu to join us. The children all arrived to a nice hot piece of pizza thanks to Butlers Pizza before being led into the dome. They were completely inspired and mesmerized by the magnificent show, and it not only entertained the children but also the adults. At half time all the children went outside and enjoyed their goody bags and played a few games. It was great to see the joy and smiles on all the children’s faces. An experience like Zip Zap will stay with them forever. Many of the children from Tambo Village, Westlake and Reach for a Dream have never had the chance to attend an event like Zip Zap before so thank you to all those people who sponsored a ticket and made it happen.

Our Volunteers and Activity Leaders were incredible as always and really helped make the day run smoothly.

We had some really positive feedback and look forward to hosting another Zip Zap day in the future.

“We so enjoyed the Zip Zap Circus and all that went with it!”

Thank you to the Zip Zap team and staff for all your wonderful help and support from beginning to end and for the amazing performance.

A special thanks to all our sponsors; HCI Foundation, Orphan Care Foundation, Truworths and Butlers Pizza
