Moscow Circus CSI Initiative

Chesterville’s kids thrilled under the Big Top!

Two hundred children from Chesterville were buzzing with excitement when they were invited VIP guests for the much-anticipated premiere of The Great Moscow Circus at SUNCOAST Casino Hotels & Entertainment.

“We had fun, it was unbelievable! I have never been to the circus before,” says Snaye Mdubu (18) from Chesterville Secondary School. “All the stuff I saw them do was beyond my imagination. I really had a good time and enjoyed the experience very much. Thanks, Suncoast, for bringing us here.”

The performers on the motorcycles were a favourite of the pupils.

“First I was scared and got a fright…but then I thought they were brilliant!” said 12-year-old Mxolisi Gumede. Blessing Ndlovu (10) agreed, “The clown on the motorbike was the best thing ever – he made me laugh!”

Vukukhanye – an NPO community upliftment programme based in Chesterville, Durban – has been in partnership with SUNCOAST since 2009. The casino’s financial contribution assists with a variety of projects in social development, bursaries, sports programmes and maintenance needs in the community.
