I see...I think I have managed to do it but I am not sure if it is the 
correct way.

First I choose Snap to vertices to be able to snap to the centre of the 
circle. Then I press F1 to set the origin of something (If you cannot 
use this function from the menu, why it is there at all?). After that, I 
press Angular Snap and unset Snap to vertices. Then I select Stretch 
objects and by using Shift+Left-Click I can scale about the center of 
the circle.

Is this right? I feel a little bit stupid, was I supposed to guess all this?
