Motorpoint will be supporting the Prince of Wales Hospice with a series of fundraising events over the next 12 months.

The car supermarket in Glass Houghton has adopted the Pontefract hospice as its charity partner.

Staff have already started planning a series of fundraising events for the summer as part of their plan to raise £6,500 – the amount of money needed to run the hospice for a day.

James Faulkner, general manager, said: “We’re delighted to have teamed up with The Prince of Wales Hospice and look forward to raising as much money as possible for a charity that does so much to support adults affected by life-limiting and life-threatening illnesses within our local community.”

Motorpoint will launch its fundraising efforts in August with a celebrity car wash - featuring players from Castleford Tigers - at its Summit Park branch, which was opened in April.

Tracey Mearns, partnership development co-ordinator at the hospice, said: “We’re so excited to be working with Motorpoint, and are extremely grateful for their support across the coming year.

“We can’t wait to hear all about their fundraising activities and wish the team the best of luck in raising their £6,500 target.”
