Motorpoint is planning to turn up the heat once again in Castleford with the return of its Charity Firewalk next month

“We thought what better way to celebrate our second anniversary than by joining other daredevils to walk over hot embers to help raise money for the Prince of Wales Hospice. The response from the public has been brilliant but you will have to hurry as”

The UK’s leading car supermarket has teamed up with the Prince of Wales Hospice for a second successive year to help raise funds for its charitable partner on Saturday, April 7 at its five-acre branch on Whistler Drive in Glasshoughton, Castleford. The event coincides with the second anniversary of the popular branch next to J32 Outlet Centre and Xscape.

Since opening its doors in 2016, Motorpoint Castleford has attracted customers from throughout Yorkshire as well as further afield, keen to take advantage of average savings of £8,500 off list price on thousands of nearly new, low mileage cars.

Last year Motorpoint hosted a similar event under the watchful eye of organisers UK Firewalk and raised over £1,000 for the Prince of Wales Hospice.

Mick Martin-Roebuck, General Manager of Motorpoint Castleford, explained: “We thought what better way to celebrate our second anniversary than by joining other daredevils to walk over hot embers to help raise money for the Prince of Wales Hospice. The response from the public has been brilliant but you will have to hurry as places are filling up fast.”

The cost of participating in the Charity Firewalk is £15 per person or £25 per couple. Entrants must be over the age of 12 to participate. Doors open at 6pm followed by a safety briefing and then the Charity Firewalk itself from 7pm onwards.
