The UK’s leading car supermarket, which has a branch minutes from J32 of the M62 in Castleford, has teamed up with the Prince of Wales Hospice to hold the one off event on Friday, February 10 from 6pm onwards at its five acre site on Whistler Drive.

The event involves participants from across the Five Towns area summon up the courage to walk across burning hot embers which at their height can burn at 1,200 degrees Fahrenheit. However, before releasing their inner daredevil, participants will receive a full training and motivational seminar from UK Firewalk, who are managing the firewalk, to ensure everyone is suitably fired up. 

James Faulkner, General Manager at Motorpoint Castleford, said: “We’re delighted to have teamed up with the Prince of Wales Hospice to host the event and look forward to welcoming everyone to the UK’s leading independent car retailer for what promises to be a night to remember.”
