Get your skates on to Motorpoint Castleford for free ice rink!

20 December 2017 Press Release

Motorpoint is urging people to get their skates on and head to its Castleford branch between Christmas and New Year to use its free ice rink

“Christmas can be an expensive time of year for families. This is why we decided to build a free ice rink between Christmas and the New Year for people of all ages from the Five Towns area to enjoy! ”

The UK’s leading car supermarket has teamed up with the Prince of Wales Hospice to build an ice skating rink at its five acre branch on Whistler Drive near J32 Outlet Centre and Xscape between December 27 – 30. The ice skating rink will be open 10-4pm daily*. There is ample free parking onsite, free Wi-Fi as well as a wide selection of hot and cold food and drinks available to purchase at the Motorpoint Café.

What’s more, there will be a selection of children’s rides, entertainers and food stalls available exclusively for visitors throughout the day on Saturday, December 30. 

Motorpoint is a long-standing supporter of the Prince of Wales Hospice. Earlier this year, the 50-strong team at Motorpoint Castleford hosted a Fire Walk to help raise money for the Hospice while more recently they provided the £1,000 first prize for its Christmas Raffle.

“Christmas can be an expensive time of year for families,” explained Mick Martin-Roebuck, General Manager of Motorpoint Castleford. “This is why we decided to build a free ice rink between Christmas and the New Year for people of all ages from the Five Towns area to enjoy! We look forward to welcoming everyone to site between December 27 – 30.”

Motorpoint is based on Whistler Drive in Castleford. A short drive from J32 of the M62, the branch officially opened in April 2016 after a multi-million pound investment in the site on the former Glasshoughton Collery. The branch stocks over 500 low mileage used cars available to drive away same day from over 30 different manufacturers.
