Swansway Motor Group director, David Smyth, who was present at the show, 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 are excited to see what the partnership brings as we enter our eighth year.
