A family-owned car dealer’s donations to Circus Starr, a unique social enterprise, have reached over £67k.
Swansway Motor Group is pleased to announce its latest donation to Circus Starr. Following a difficult and ongoing period during this global pandemic, Swansway are incredibly honoured to be able to give back to the local community and support a local organisation.
The family-owned business has today announced an additional £5,460 has been donated and received by the not for profit organisation.
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”.
Swansway has donated over £67k to Circus Starr since January 2016 through the sale of Motability cars. For every vehicle sold on the Motability Scheme, the group donates £20 which enable a child and the carer to go to a Circus Starr show.
Circus Starr’s Communications Manager, Sarah Hall said: “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”.
Circus Starr are looking to start their winter tour in early 2021.
The Motability Scheme is open to anyone in receipt of higher rate mobility allowance (such as the Enhanced Rate of the Mobility Component of Personal Independence Payment or the Higher Rate Mobility Component of Disability Living Allowance). Recipients can exchange all or part of their allowance to lease a car such as the ever popular Motability SUV or hatchback ranges.
