Digby Brown donate tickets to “The Winter Circus”

Circus Starr 2020 performers

Digby Brown were proud to support Circus Starr for the fifth year with their performance “The Winter Circus”.

Circus Starr allows disadvantaged, disabled or vulnerable children to enjoy relaxed performances of their show.

We offered free tickets to local children’s charities including: Aberlour, Bobath Scotland, Dundee Dragons, Edinburgh Children's Hospital, Finding Your Feet, Kindred, SAMs Club, The Brae Riding for the Disabled and The Yard.

For parents, these performances allow them to take their children to something they might not have thought an option before.

Cassandra, one of the Kindred parents who attended the Edinburgh show said: “thanks for the circus – it was amazing”

Finding Your Feet arranged for families to attend all three performances, saying: “At Finding Your Feet, we not only support people with limb loss but also their families, so it¹s fantastic to offer places at events like this. The Circus Starr tickets are always something our community look forward to - it¹s an event which brings families together through laughter and fun and that¹s what we¹re all about!"

Families from Bobath Scotland and SAMs Club attended the Glasgow performance and they had great feedback from the families that attended: “My daughter Zara loved this show. The staff were very friendly and we were able to totally relax. We are extremely grateful for the opportunity and would recommend this to anyone who gets tickets in the future.”

"I just wanted to say a huge thank you on behalf of myself and my family for your kind donation of tickets to the circus. My children had an absolutely fantastic experience and this would not have been possible without the support of SAMs and companies like yourselves."

Michelle Crossley, Fundraising Director at Circus Starr said: “Circus Starr are proud to share the magical art of circus with those who may usually miss out. Thanks to the amazing support we have received from Digby Brown we have been able to share smiles with those who need them the most.

"Their generous contribution means that we have been able to make a positive impact in communities throughout Scotland once again, and we can’t wait to do it all again next year!”
