Founded by entertainer Ash Perrin in 2007, the Flying Seagull Project aims to spread love, light and laughter to hospitals, orphanages, deaf/blind schools, marginalised communities, refugee camps and slums across the globe
The charity does great work around the world to help bring smiles and happiness to people. Some examples of their work involve partnering with doctors to provide pre- and post-op clown therapy to children undergoing surgery, performing shows in hospital wards or refugee camps and workshops to teach people circus skills or play games for a while. The people the charity work with are often socially isolated or marginalised by society so building trusting relationships is central to their approach.
As soon as we heard about the fantastic work the charity does we knew we wanted to support in some way. The Equilibrium Foundation has therefore donated £1,000 to the charity to help them continue to deliver their worthwhile projects. The donation will include sponsoring a volunteer to train and go to Greece to perform to Syrian children in refugee camps.
