Swansway Makes Kids the Starrs

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 family owned Swansway Motor Group - based in Crewe - with 4 dealerships in the town, Audi, Volkswagen, SEAT and Jaguar, has been supporting since January 2016. Swansway director, David Smyth, explained, “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, explained, “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.”

“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”.
