Charity information

The Flying Seagull Project

Professional entertainer Ash Perrin founded The Flying Seagull Project in 2008 to bring
happiness to children who are underprivileged, marginalised or suffering. The UK-based
charity currently has 20+ entertainers engaged in arts workshops, music and dance lessons,
circus shows and clown doctoring. Together they’ve spread love, light and laughter to more
than 100,000 children in hospitals, orphanages, deaf/blind schools, refugee camps and slums
around the world.

Founded 2008

  • Mission statement

    According to the UN, there are more than 50 million child refugees worldwide. Their needs are complex. They often suffer from behavioural problems, self-esteem issues and learning difficulties. As well as food and shelter, these children need a safe space to relax, laugh, sing and dance. Our volunteers, all professional entertainers, visit hospitals, orphanages and refugee camps to provide respite from the suffering, spread smiles and let children be children.

    Our motto is 'we're just after your laughter', and using music,circus and art we can cheer up near enough anyone

    Our opinion is that quality of life is a right, including a good belly laugh, in the hardest of circumstances to be entertained and amused is essential

    We aim to build strong relationships with the people and communities. The people involved are often socially isolated, making these meaningful connections is key

    It isn’t a matter of whether we can change the world, it’s a matter of how many children’s lives we can improve

    There is more that unites than divides us, so join the laugh-olution and make the world a better place
