Swansway Motor Group has been supporting Circus Starr, a touring Circus that provides an enjoyable day out for thousands of disadvantaged, disabled or vulnerable children every year, since January 2016. They donate £20 for every car ordered by Motability customers at their dealerships, enough to pay for one child and a carer to visit the unique Circus Starr show.
Last week the family-owned motor group announced that an additional £5,460 has just been donated and received by Circus Starr, bringing the overall total donated by Swansway to just over £67,000.
Swansway Director, David Smyth said: “We have worked closely with Circus Starr for a number of years now and we continue to be in awe of the incredible and inspiring work that they do“.
“The Coronavirus pandemic has been immensely difficult for us all and I can’t imagine how tough it has been for the children who benefit the most from Circus Starr. Being able to give back and help to give them something to look forward to means the world to us as a group”.
Circus Starr’s Communications Manager, Sarah Hall added: “It is amazing that Swansway Motor Group are still willing and able to support us, we really do appreciate their support especially during these uncertain times. We are very much looking forward to getting our big tent back out on the road and seeing the smiles on our audience’s faces again soon”.
Founded in 1987, Circus Starr has now given over one million underprivileged children and children with disabilities the opportunity to go to the circus. They are hoping to start their winter tour in early 2021.
Swansway Donate £20 For Every Motability Car Ordered At Their Dealerships
Since the partnership began in 2016, Swansway have donated enough money for over 3,300 children and their carers to share a truly magical experience at the circus, and it's all thanks to the sale of Motability vehicles.
The Motability Scheme helps disabled people in the UK stay mobile and retain their independence through the lease of a brand new car or Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle (WAV). The package that comes with every vehicle includes comprehensive insurance for up to 3 drivers, servicing and maintenance, full RAC breakdown assistance, replacement tyres, replacement windscreens and a 60,000 mile allowance over 3 years (5 years and 100,000 miles for WAVs)
