Saving money, protecting the planet and helping animals

Dear Friends

How can a circus do all three things?

Well, Martin Lacey, Director of the Great British Circus, is claming that the high cost of fuel is threatening to harm his business.  Apparently it costs between £1,500 and £1,600 a week to heat the Big Top and at least £100 to move the Circus 10 miles. 

Well it’s nice, for a change, to see Mr Lacey concerned about something other than the consistent and profound critics who are calling for an end to the use of wild animals in circuses – like Born Free.  But there is a way of getting our agendas to happily collide.  By bringing the curtain down on the circus, it will save all that hot air, all that money and conclude a sorry chapter in Britain’s history – the animals will perform no more.

Just a thought ……..
