Uni­cy­cling Sam’s cake chal­lenge

South Wales Echo - - YOURS -

WHEN Macmil­lan Wales asked NoFit State Cir­cus if any of its per­form­ers would like to “have fun with cake” to pro­mote the World’s Biggest Cof­fee Morn­ing the in­ter­na­tion­ally renowned cir­cus did not dis­ap­point.

Award-win­ning uni­cy­clist, jug­gler and tight-wire per­former Sam Good­burn took on the “cakey” chal­lenge in­clud­ing uni­cy­cling on a tight-wire while jug­gling muffins, freestyling with teabags and fi­nally flip­ping Welsh cakes from shoe to cap to plate to pro­mote the event which is tak­ing place on Fri­day, Septem­ber 29.

The unique cake rou­tines were filmed at NoFit State Cir­cus’ HQ in Cardiff and will be shared on so­cial me­dia over the next couple of weeks.

Speak­ing about sup­port­ing the char­ity which pro­vides prac­ti­cal, med­i­cal, emo­tional and fi­nan­cial sup­port to peo­ple liv­ing with can­cer, Luc Mor­ris, NoFit State’s com­mu­ni­ca­tions and mar­ket­ing of­fi­cer, said: “Us­ing cir­cus in such a fun and pos­i­tive way to pro­mote Macmil­lan’s well-loved World’s Biggest Cof­fee Morn­ing cam­paign has been a great ex­pe­ri­ence.

“There’s no get­ting away from it; most of us will be af­fected by can­cer dur­ing our life­times. So, whether it’s cake, cir­cus, or bal­anc­ing both while 7ft up on a high-wire, we’re proud to be able to spread a lit­tle joy, bring peo­ple to­gether and hope­fully help raise aware­ness of Macmil­lan’s ex­cel­lent work.”

Su­san Mor­ris, head of ser­vices in Wales for Macmil­lan Can­cer Sup­port, said: “Sam is amaz­ing and he’s def­i­nitely added a novel twist to host­ing a cof­fee morn­ing but you don’t need Sam’s tal­ents to hold a cof­fee morn­ing for Macmil­lan.

“Ev­ery year in Wales 19,000 peo­ple re­ceive the dev­as­tat­ing news that they have can­cer. By 2030, there will be 250,000 in Wales liv­ing with can­cer.

“The money raised from host­ing a cof­fee morn­ing in homes, work­places and schools around Wales helps to fund our spe­cial­ist can­cer nurses, phys­io­ther­a­pists, di­eti­cians, wel­fare ben­e­fits ad­vis­ers and can­cer in­for­ma­tion and sup­port spe­cial­ists.”
