New Prominent Member of Charity

Media Release 12.7.11

Cirque du Ciel has a local MP as the newest member of the Charity. Andrew George MP found out about Cirque du Ciel’s projects working with families traumatized by domestic violence through the government grant scheme, Awards for All.

He wrote to congratulate the charity on receiving an award for £10,000 from Awards for All to work with vulnerable families who had experienced domestic violence in two locations in Cornwall and Devon. He was so impressed by Cirque du Ciel’s work that he agreed to become a member, so he could be updated on the progress of the project and find out more information on activities that Cirque du Ciel runs.

Andrew George is MP for West Cornwall, St Ives and the Isles of Scilly. If you are interested in becoming a member of the charity (costs £3 per year) or feel you have the skills to become a trustee please contact the charity manager through the site.
