Swansway Motor Group is delighted to announce that it has surpassed £100,000 in donations to the non-profit organisation Circus Starr. 

This milestone donation comes in the seventh year of the partnership between the car dealer group and Circus Starr, with the most recent donation made on behalf of its Blackburn Audi, Preston Audi, and Volkswagen Van Centre Lancashire retailers, taking it beyond this landmark donation.

Swansway Motor Group has been raising money through the sale of Motability vehicles, donating £25 per vehicle sold to cover the cost of a ticket for a child and their carer to attend a Circus Starr show. 

To raise £100,000, Swansway Motor Group has sold more than 5,000 Motability vehicles since 2016. 

This is the first time that an organisation supporting Circus Starr has reached £100,000 in donations. 

The two parties celebrated this milestone achievement together at the Circus Starr show hosted at the Swansway Stadium, home of Nantwich Town FC on Monday 12th June. It was a wonderful event with members from Swansway Head Office including Swansway Motor Group Director David Smyth in attendance. 

Sarah Hall, communications and engagement manager at Circus Starr, commented: "We are overwhelmed at the support we have received from Swansway Motor Group over the last seen years. To reach such a milestone figure in their donations is something we have never experienced before and we are incredibly grateful for their support.

"It has been brilliant to celebrate with the Swansway team across the country, we’ve loved having their team at our shows and it was fantastic to celebrate at the Swansway Stadium.”

Swansway Motor Group director David Smyth added: “It’s our pleasure to reach the £100,000 donation mark with Circus Starr and it’s been wonderful to celebrate this milestone achievement together. Over the last few weeks, many of our team members have been able to see first-hand the importance of Circus Starr’s work.”
