We support ‘circus with a purpose’ for disadvantaged children

23rd May 2022

We have been celebrating the success of a magical big-top extravaganza in Nottingham that we helped fund for dozens of disadvantaged children.

For the second year running, we have donated much-needed funds to Circus Starr, a charitable organisation that lays on world-class, family friendly circus performances across the UK for disabled and disadvantaged children and their carers.

Two Nottingham performances of the animal-free ‘circus with a purpose’ entertained full houses at Nottingham Racecourse, in Colwick Park, on Tuesday, May 3.

Nottingham was one of over 30 UK locations chosen this year to make dreams come true for hundreds of children, with entertainment designed specifically to engage even the most vulnerable of attendees.

The donation from us was part of our long-term drive to support the local community.

MaryClaire Morgan, sales manager at Peter James Homes, said: “The smiles on the faces of the children and their carers are priceless every year.

“We’re so happy that we could once again support the amazing work of Circus Starr. There are few more worthy causes, particularly when you witness the sheer delight it brings to so many youngsters.”

Last year’s Nottingham Circus Starr events eventually went ahead in September after Covid restrictions forced their postponement from earlier in the year.

Through sponsorships and donations from businesses and individuals around the UK, Circus Starr has donated thousands of free tickets, worth more than £13m, since 1987.

Michelle Crossley, fundraising manager at Circus Starr, said: “We would like to say a massive thank you to Peter James Homes for their fantastic support of our community event.

“With their generous contribution we’ve been able to make magical memories with local vulnerable and disadvantaged children at our inclusive show.”

We also supported the Gem 106 Mission Christmas Appeal last year by donating hundreds of Christmas gifts to Gem 106 radio station’s Mission Christmas appeal, in conjunction with our infrastructure partner, McCann Group. We also raised additional cash from staff, partners and suppliers as part of Christmas Jumper Day.

We have built our reputation on designing high-quality homes that utilise the best in local craftsmanship.
