Motorpoint is urging people to get their skates on and head to its Castleford branch between Christmas and New Year to ice skate for free.
The UK’s leading car supermarket has teamed up with the Prince of Wales Hospice to build an ice skating rink at its five acre branch on Whistler Drive near J32 Outlet Centre and Xscape between December 28 – 30. The ice skating rink will be open 10-4pm daily. There is ample free parking onsite, free Wi-Fi as well as a wide selection of hot and cold food and drinks available to purchase at the Motorpoint Café.
What’s more, a number of local music artists will be performing over the three days while the Castleford Tigers players have agreed to participate in a special ‘Selection Box Treasure Hunt’ on Saturday, December 29.
Motorpoint is a long-standing supporter of the Prince of Wales Hospice raising close to £10,000 this year for the popular Hospice, which supports adults with life limiting illnesses in the Five Towns area.
“Christmas can be an expensive time of year for families,” explained Mick Martin-Roebuck, General Manager of Motorpoint Castleford. “This is why we decided to build an ice rink between Christmas and the New Year so people of all ages from the Five Towns area can pop down to skate for free. We look forward to welcoming everyone to Motorpoint Castleford between December 28 – 30.”
Motorpoint is based on Whistler Drive in Castleford. A short drive from J32 of the M62, the branch officially opened in April 2016 after a multi-million pound investment in the site on the former Glasshoughton Colliery. The branch stocks over 500 low mileage used cars available to drive away same day from over 30 different manufacturers backed by the Motorpoint Price Pledge.
