Swansway donation creates Circus Starrs

“We’re thrilled with Swansway’s continued support and another donation, this time £3,300. A big thank you to all the staff at Swansway who make this happen”

Circus Starr is in full tour mode, criss-crossing the country, giving underprivileged children, and children with disabilities, the chance to run away to the circus and forget their troubles for a day.

Founded in 1987, Circus Starr, is a unique organisation which Carlisle Audi, part of family owned and run, Swansway Motor Group, has been supporting since January 2016, as director.

David Smyth said: “For each car we sell on the Motability scheme we give £20 to Circus Starr; that’s the cost of one child and their parent or carer going to a Circus Starr performance; but, for the children who attend, this is so much more than just a trip to the circus, it can be life-changing.”

The third quarter of 2018 saw Swansway donate £3,300 to Circus Starr; David added, “We’re so delighted to be involved with Circus Starr and our latest donation means we’ve now given £35,869 to this wonderful organisation and we know they value every penny”.

Delighted Fundraising Manager, Simone Unett, said: “For children, their parents and siblings, visiting a Circus Starr performance can be life-changing. It allows the whole family to share a truly magical experience free of any worries, knowing their needs will be met and their senses wowed. It’s a place families who too often miss out on fun can relax, be themselves and feel included.”
