The (Smallest!) Greatest Show On Earth
The show was put on to celebrate the work done by member firms, and to highlight the diversity of voluntary organisations that benefit from ProHelp’s support.
Throughout the night I chatted to representatives from Home Start Norfolk (supporting families with young children) New Routes (empowering refugees and asylum seekers in the local area) Time Norfolk (support for pregnancy loss) and the Flordon Community Centre, among others. What a pleasant and wide-ranging group, all of whom strive to help their communities.
The performance from the Oak’s troupe was fantastic. A combination of aerial silks, juggling, hoop and tap dancing made for a riveting (often palm sweating!) display. Having moved into the church a couple of years ago, the Oak Circus has become a staple part of the community, empowering young people to follow a colourful, more creative form of exercise.
Many thanks to Debbi Christophers, Julie Grimmer and all at Norfolk ProHelp who helped organise the event. Also to Norse for their sponsorship and of course to the Oak Circus Centre for a thrilling performance.
2018 marks a record intake of projects for ProHelp. Each has supported the region’s voluntary sector with vital skills and services.
