TWO charities have received donations from a team of Warrington workers to help people who have been impacted by COVID-19.
The team at Amazon’s Warrington fulfilment centre donated £1,000 to the West Lancs Crisis and Information Centre (the Birchwood Centre), a charity that provides a range of services for adults and young people, to prevent homelessness, reduce social isolation and improve health and wellbeing.
As a result, the charity was able to deliver food hampers, home cooked meals and essential items to vulnerable individuals and families in Warrington during lockdown.
The Amazon team also donated £1,000 to Halton Women’s Centre, which works as part of Cheshire’s Victim Service to provide emotional support to improve the wellbeing, mental and physical health of local people.
Priyanka Bernard, site leader at the Warrington fulfilment centre, said: “We are pleased to make these donations to Birchwood Centre and Halton’s Women’s Centre to help the people of our community. Both organisations are important charities in our community that do vital work for people across Warrington.”
Stella Connell from Birchwood Centre added: “At this time of great uncertainty, the individuals, families and local communities that rely on our services remain at the heart of everything we do. We are grateful for this support and would like to thank Priyanka and the team.”
Community donations is one of a number of ways in which the company is supporting communities across the UK during COVID-19.
Disadvantaged students are being provided with online STEM courses and three quarters of a million healthy breakfasts are being distributed across the UK, in a partnership with charity Magic Breakfast.
