Crockery is needed for juggling act at Lighthouse in Poole

INTERNATIONAL jugglers the Gandinis are calling for local people to donate unwanted old-fashioned and kitsch crockery for one of their shows at Lighthouse in Poole.

The group needs at least two teapots, six medium plates, six cups and saucers and two decorations, such as vases, milk jugs, sugar bowls and cake stands for a performance of Smashed.

Anyone who can help should ring Paul Tucker on 01202 881300.

The Gandinis will be at Lighthouse for its 10th birthday free family circus fun day on Sunday October 14.

They will be performing Smashed on October 19 and another show, Motet, the next day.

I sincerely hope no one gives them Grandma's antique china to be smashed ......

Have they not thought of just buying some from charity shops - which would also help the less fortunate in society? Just a thought .....

Perhaps Beales could donate some. Last year I saw a woman in the homewares department (staff) smashing items into a box. Whatever for I don't know but a flippin waste. Remember seeing her take a hammer to an ornament. So they probably have a few items, lol, for trashing!!!

I agree with Morrigan - everyone knows you can buy 2nd hand crockery very cheaply from charity shops so why ask the public to donate?
