Heatrae Sadia has announced a fundraiser with a twist, as it brings all the excitement of the circus to Norfolk.

The Norwich-based electric water heating and unvented heating systems supplier has organised the circus as part of a fundraising drive to support both The Alzheimer’s Society and a range of local causes. This year also marks the 250th anniversary of the first ever UK circus, which was founded by Phillip Astley in 1768, adding extra relevance to the choice of fundraiser.

On 19 August, attendees will be dazzled by Happy’s Circus, with performances from acrobats, aerialists, magic speciality acts, and more included in the the show, which runs in Horning from 2pm to 4pm.

Nathan Turner, Senior Management Accountant at Heatrae Sadia, has been central to planning the event. He said: “Giving back to the community is extremely important to Heatrae Sadia, and every year we work hard to raise funds for our chosen charities.

“This time, we wanted to do something a little bit different, and that’s how we hit upon the idea of the circus. Horning Parish Council have very generously given us the pitching ground free of charge, and Happy’s Circus is performing at a discounted rate, so we’re hopeful that this event will raise a substantial amount for The Alzheimer’s Society and various local causes.

“Tickets are available now, and we are extremely excited to see all of our planning come to fruition. It’s bound to be a great event, and we hope to see as many people as possible there!”
