Thousands donated to hospice at circus themed fundraiser

A circus themed fundraiser raised more than �20,000 for the work of a St John’s Wood hospice on Thursday (September 27).

Around 130 guests paid �100 for tickets to the event at St John and Elizabeth’s hospital, which raised funds for St John’s Hospice.

Guests were treated to a champagne reception and dinner, as they witnessed circus performers back flip over rows of kitchen knives.

An auction raised a significant portion of the cash, with one buyer snapping a ticket for a Caribbean break, and others bagging tours of nearby Lords Cricket Ground.
