Providing greater opportunities for creative growth

For more than six years, Roundabout Circus has provided people from across the Central Coast an outlet to unlock their personal and creative potential, as well as deliver social inclusion through circus arts.

After taking out the June round of Greater Bank’s #GreaterCentralCoast Community Funding Program, the Wyoming-based community circus will look to invest the $2000 winning to offer discounted classes and programs for disadvantaged groups in the community such as people with disabilities and at-risk youth.

Roundabout Circus was founded by Rachel Peters and Andy Long in January 2017. It provides participants with a mix of sports and art that brings together physical activity and creative expression in a non-competitive atmosphere.

“Our focus at Roundabout Circus is on promoting the benefits of social circus arts in our community, which includes developing skills that improve confidence, self-esteem, attention span, creativity and co-ordination,” Rachel said.

“Social inclusion is really important to us which is why we offer an atmosphere for everyone to explore their creativity and self expression.

“We are delighted to receive this funding from the Greater, which will help support our Spiral Coast program that offers circus to the wider community for free at our monthly Gosford events.”

Also benefiting from the June round were runners-up, Central Coast Sporting Horse Association and Symphony Central Coast, each receiving $500.

Greater Bank’s Central Coast Regional Sales Manager, Josh Swetnam, said it’s terrific to see such diversity among the organisations receiving support through the #GreaterCentralCoast Community Funding Program.

“The range of community groups that apply to take part in the program is amazing, with a circus group, sporting club, and an orchestra the winners this month,” Josh said.

“We are very proud to help these groups to provide the sorts of activities and opportunities that make the Central Coast such a great place to live.”

Online voting in the July round of the #GreaterCentralCoast community funding program is open from 9.00am Monday July 4 until 5.00pm Wednesday July 27 2022, with Capes4Kids Australia Inc, Milly's Search Trap and Rescue Group and Technical Aid to the Disabled to share $3,000 in monthly funding.
