05 December 2018 Press Release

Motorpoint is helping Cash for Kids to get mobile in the run up to Christmas

“It was a pleasure to be able to play our part in helping Cash for Kids get mobile for Mission Christmas”

The UK’s leading independent car retailer, which is based on the popular Sheffield Business Park, is providing the charity with two branded vehicles as part of its drive to support Mission Christmas throughout November and December.

Motorpoint has given Allan Ogle and his team at Cash for Kids the use of a top of the range Toyota Hilux so that they can transport their sleigh throughout the region in order for Santa to turn on the lights at events across Sheffield and South Yorkshire – starting with Crystal Peaks Shopping Centre this week.

They have also provided the charity with a Hyundai i800 so that they can visit official Mission Christmas Drop Off Points on a weekly basis to collect new, unwrapped gifts as well deliver the thousands of donated gifts to homes ahead of Christmas.

Chris Goodison, General Manager of Motorpoint Sheffield said: “We have over 500 low mileage, nearly new vehicles in stock on site in Sheffield so it was a pleasure to be able to play our part in helping Cash for Kids get mobile for Mission Christmas.”

Motorpoint recently celebrated becoming an official Mission Christmas Drop Off Point by building a spectacular 20ft Christmas Tree inside its showroom for visitors to place their gifts underneath over the coming weeks. 

What’s more, everyone who donates a new, unwrapped gift at its branch on Europa Link from now until December 19 will get the opportunity to enter our competition to win themselves £1,000 as part of our drive to help give every child in the region the magical Christmas they deserve.

For your chance to win £1,000 towards Christmas pop along to Motorpoint Sheffield and post your entry into the ‘Christmas Wish’ box. The branch is open seven days a week, including until 8pm weekdays. The winner will be chosen at random on December 20.

Mission Christmas is South Yorkshire’s largest annual Christmas toy appeal generating thousands of new and unwrapped gifts for disadvantaged children between the ages of 0-18.
