CIRCUS WA will hopefully have its big top up by this weekend.
During the week a team of woodworkers put together the timber training floor in anticipation of the tent being raised this weekend.
But circus boss Jo Smith said they’d had to appoint an engineer and electrician to make sure the tent complied with all the rules, and as a result costs had risen.
She says they’ve kept their fundraising page open and hope locals can pitch in to get them over the line and pay their tradies.
Anyone who can juggle a few shekels their way can do so at http://www.australianculturalfund.org.au/projects/big-top-for-freo.
