Swansway Group Help Keep The Fun Of The Circus Alive!
The family-owned car dealer group have been a supporter of Circus Starr since 2016, donating £20 for each car they register through the Motability Scheme. £20 covers the cost of one child and their parent or care giver to attend a Circus Starr performance.
Despite the Coronavirus pandemic causing so many disruptions last year, Swansway still managed to still make their sizable quarterly donations to Circus Starr. The group have adapted to become an online 'click and collect' retailer for Motability customers, so scheme applicants can continue to stay mobile with a brand new Motability vehicle. The family-owned business recently announced their final donation figure for 2020, bringing the overall annual donation up to £13,640.
During 2020, Circus Starr had to cancel all their shows due to the Coronavirus pandemic. As a result, the donations made by Swansway Group in 2020 have instead been used to directly support Circus Starr.
Swansway Group Director, David Smyth said:
“2020 was a difficult year for everyone, but we can’t imagine how difficult it has been for some parents and children. Being able to continue our quarterly support has been a priority for us and we’re so pleased to have been able to help.
“Even though the show hasn’t been able to operate for coming up to 12 months now, our support has allowed Circus Starr to stay running, and be able to return to work when it is safe to do so”.
Sarah Hall, Communications and Engagement Manager at Circus Starr added:
“Once again we have been amazed by the generous donation we have received from Swansway Group! In these difficult times we feel very lucky to be working with such a caring company, who are still offering their support so that we can continue our much needed work. We are so grateful for this contribution, thank you Swansway Group!”
