Use the Sun are delighted to support Circus Starr charity again this year
Circus Starr are a fabulous charity that raise money for kids whilst giving them a fun day out. Normally a bit sceptic about such arrangements between fund raisers and charities (they are mainly scams) I phoned the Hospital to check this was real before making my donation.
Here’s what they say about themselves
We are an independent, charitable organisation that supports disadvantaged and disabled children across the UK.
Established in 1987, we provide new opportunities for children and their families to share an enjoyable time together, free of charge.
We have seen time and again how a trip to the circus can change a childâ€™s life and your donation will help bring the fun, excitement and magic of the circus to children who would not normally get chance to experience such an event.
With the funds raised from our world-class circus production, we aim to create long-term change within the towns we work by raising awareness of the issues facing disadvantaged children.
9 Panels installed on a bespoke steel frame to avoid touching the tiles in Charles Street, W1
One of our more interesting challanges.
How to instal a 3kW system in a small space without touching the pitched roof. Even with the super powered Sunpower panels we needed 9 panels and there was only room for 6 on the flat roof. So we built our own steel framework.
Holding 6 panes and ballast on the flat roof the framework had an arm that would hold a further 3 panels just inches above the pitched roof without touching it.
