MOTORPOINT raised close to £30,000 for its charitable partners in 2018, the independent car retailer has revealed.

Staff at the network of branches across England, Scotland and Wales were busy over the past 12 months hosting a variety of on-site public events to help raise funds for their charitable partners.

They included a special drive-in cinema at Motorpoint Sheffield in aid of Cash for Kids, a three-day free ice skating rink at Motorpoint Castleford to raise money for the Prince of Wales Hospice, a doggy day at Motorpoint Glasgow in aid of the Dogs Trust, and a 10k run by Motorpoint Burnley in aid of Lancashire Mind, pictured.

Other charitable partners to benefit from the Motorpoint team’s efforts included Acorns Hospice, Sandwell Parents for Disabled Children,  and the James Bulger Memorial Trust. Together, the various events raised a total of £28,140

Cat Moseley, HR director of Motorpoint, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to have raised so much money for charity in 2018. It has exceeded all our expectations and we are already busy planning events that will enable us to exceed this amount in 2019.

‘As one of the Sunday Times Top 100 Mid-Sized Companies To Work For, we place great importance on our team supporting their local communities. The fundraising they undertake for their charitable partners is a key element of this and we are extremely proud of their contribution during the past 12 months.’
