Motorpoint Peterborough Drive In Cinema raises money for charity

04 September 2019 Press Release

Motorpoint’s first ever Drive in Cinema in Peterborough raised over £1,100.

The Peterborough branch teamed up with Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice to put on a special screening of ‘The Greatest Showman’ at the Serpentine Green Shopping Centre.

Film lovers from across the city flocked to the popular out of town venue to watch the award-winning musical starring Hugh Jackman, Zac Efron, Michelle Williams and Rebecca Ferguson. In fact, over 200 people attended the event raising a total of £1,132 for the Hospice.

Motorpoint has been a charitable partner of Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall for the last two years, during which time it has raised thousands for the incredible charity,  supporting events including the annual Dragon Boat Festival.

Tom Stanton, General Manager of Motorpoint in Peterborough, said: “It was fantastic to see so many people enjoying themselves at our first-ever Drive In Cinema watching ‘The Greatest Showman’ at Serpentine Green. And the best thing about it was that collectively we helped raise an impressive amount of money for our charitable partner - Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice.”

Nilesh Patel, Senior Community Fundraiser at Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice, added: “I really can’t thank Motorpoint enough for organising the Drive In Cinema. It proved really popular and will help to make a real difference to the lives of people in Peterborough under the care of the Hospice. The funds raised will help us to continue to provide our compassionate care and be there for local families when it matters.”
