Swansway Motor Group donated a record-breaking yearly total of £20,940 to the not-for-profit organisation Circus Starr, in a year that saw their long-standing partnership total £100,000.
Swansway have supported Circus Starr by donating £25 to the Congleton-based organisation each time a Swansway site sells a vehicle on the Motability scheme. In the final quarter of 2024, the group donated a further £5,875 to the cause, bringing the yearly total up to £20,940.
June 2023 saw donations surpass the £100,000 mark. This impressive achievement was celebrated at Circus Starr’s Crewe show, held at the Swansway Stadium.
Swansway director David Smyth attended the show and said: “Over the past seven years I’ve seen firsthand the meaningful work Circus Starr carries out and am proud that Swansway has been able to support this. We’re excited to see what the partnership brings as we enter our eighth year.”
Circus Starr provides entertainment for children with additional needs or families in difficult circumstances.
Sarah Hall, communications and engagement manager at Circus Starr said: “Donations like Swansway’s make tours possible. The £25 which Swansway donates is enough for a child and their carer to attend one of our shows.”
Swansway’s contribution is the biggest Circus Starr has ever received.
