Circus performers near Grantham rely on Foodbank donations amid claims they've 'been forgotten' by government

Circus performers based near Grantham have been relying on charity handouts since the outbreak of the coronavirus.

More than 50 circus artistes are currently living at the winter headquarters of Uncle Sam’s Great American Circus, off the A607 Lincoln Road at Honington.
