A charity which gives underprivileged children and those with disabilities the chance to become a ‘circus star’ for a day has received support from Dow Schofield Watts for the third year running.

The firm has paid for a number of children in the North to visit performances by Circus Starr, a touring professional circus which gives them the chance to experience the excitement of the big top. Established in 1987, it offers a relaxed performance environment where children are actively encouraged to interact with the performances.

Philip Price of Dow Schofield Watts said: “We know these trips hold many benefits and have even been life-changing for some, helping to increase confidence and create a feeling of inclusion. This is one of a range of initiatives which we support as part of the firm’s wider social responsibility scheme.”
