Motorpoint is set to raise £1,000 for charity after hosting a firewalk in Castleford

Richard Smith, Sales Manager at Motorpoint in Castleford, said: “It was a real pleasure to host the event last month and even more satisfying to find out that our support will eventually help raise £1,000 for our charity partner – the Prince of Wales Hospice. We look forward to working with the Hospice on other projects over the coming months.”
