Cirque Africa perform and raise money for kids at Wagga Hospital

CIRQUE Africa brought smiles to the faces of sick kids during a selfless performance in the children’s ward of the Wagga Rural Referral Hospital on Wednesday afternoon. 

Eight talented artists stepped out of their comfort zones and performed in the corridors of the hospital with heart-warming intentions. 

“We wanted to give the kids something to laugh at and smile about and really make them feel better,” Cirque Africa administrator Kimberley Wuddle said. 

“It’s our way of giving back to the community.

“They were very receptive to it, they looked captivated and it seemed that they really had a great time.”  

As part of the visit, the ensemble donated the proceeds of 100 show bookings for its opening night at the Wagga Showgrounds next Wednesday.
