Support New Zealand's premier circus facility through the COVID19 health crisis. The Circus Hub needs your help!
Kia ora circus whanau,
As everyone is well aware we are amid a global health crisis. Due to the nature of the circus hub we are very vulnerable to the health measures required of us and the wider community, as well as the ongoing economic issues this pandemic is creating.
Unfortunately, the timing of the lock down means for us that we are unable to run our April School Holiday programme, or take regular class bookings for our Term 2, which translates into a major loss of income for this year.
We are incredibly grateful to have received support through the government's wage subsidy scheme, as well as a lease reduction for this month. We are putting our staff to good use to keep the community engaged in the lock down, and preparing for our reopening.
It is hard to put a dollar figure on the impact this will have on the Hub, however we know we will be playing catch up for months, if not years to come.
As a charitable trust, this is far beyond any curve ball we had been planning for/could have predicted - which is why we are asking for help. If you are in a position to do so, we would greatly appreciate any contribution you can make, which will help cover the costs of our overheads for April. As a suggestion, you could consider donating the cost of a day of School Holiday Programme ($68), or of a casual booking ($35).
If the circus hub has inspired you, challenged you or welcomed you with open arms, we would be eternally grateful if you would support us through this time.
We understand this situation is going to adversely affect a huge range of businesses and people and understand we won’t be the only one’s needing assistance.
Which is why we’re asking softly - if you want to see “The Circus Hub” as part of Wellington's cultural landscape into the future we’ll need your help and support.
The Wellington Circus Trust was formed through the founders passion and drive to share circus with the Wellington public. From humble beginnings in 2005 It has now grown to become the largest and busiest circus school in New Zealand.
