Motorpoint agrees to sponsor first ever Children First Derby ball15 April 2016
Motorpoint has agreed to become the headline sponsor for the Children First Derby Charity Ball later this year at the iPro Stadium
The UK’s leading car supermarket has teamed up with the long-established children charity, based on Leopold Street in the city, to help fund the star-studded event which is set to take place for the first time at the home of Derby County.
And, the charity’s patron, Derby-born actress Gwen Taylor, best known for her roles in Coronation Street and Heartbeat as well as the ‘Tracy Ullman Show’ earlier this year, visited the company’s headquarters on Pentagon Island recently to find out more about Motorpoint as well as being presented with a cheque. The Charity Ball takes place in the Dave Mackay Suite on Saturday, October 22.
Satvir Atwal, General Manager of Motorpoint Derby, added: “We are looking forward to working in partnership with Children First Derby in the run up to their Charity Ball in October and supporting the valuable work they do supporting vulnerable children, young people and families in the city.”
Gwen Taylor added: “We are absolutely thrilled that Motorpoint has agreed to support our Charity Ball. Sponsorship from a prestigious company such as Motorpoint is really important to us for both generating much needed funding but also raising public awareness of the essential work we do at Children First Derby as a charity.”
