Primary school pupils supported by £1000 Amazon donation


WESTBROOK Old Hall Primary School has received a donation of £1,000 from the Amazon team in Warrington, following a burglary that left the school without some of its learning technology.

The donation from Amazon will go towards purchasing iPads to support pupils’ learning and development.

Andrew Livingstone, Senior Operations Manager at Amazon in Warrington, said: “We were shocked to hear about the break-in at Westbrook Old Hall Primary School and wanted to do what we could to help those affected. Having access to educational development resources is crucial for teachers wanting to do the best for their pupils, so we hope this donation helps to fund their provision.”
Mary Lythall-Brennan, Headteacher at Westbrook Old Hall Primary School added: “We would like to say thank you to the team at Amazon in Warrington for this donation and support during a difficult time. This donation will bring a much-needed boost to our educational resources for both staff and pupils at the school.”

Amazon supports the communities where it operates and has delivered free computer science and STEM education programmes to more than 700,000 students across the UK through Amazon Future Engineer.
Amazon helps community organisations transport meals and other essentials to families in need through its pro bono logistics programme, Amazon Local Good, including more than seven million healthy breakfasts to children at risk of hunger in partnership with Magic Breakfast. And through its Multibank initiative, co-founded with former UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown, Amazon has supported more than 200,000 families experiencing poverty, with the donation of more than 2 million surplus essential goods.

Amazon partners with Comic Relief to help people tackle poverty and is the official home of the charity’s iconic Red Nose. Together with its employees, customers, and partners, Amazon has raised over £4.8 million to fund projects that support people struggling with the cost-of-living crisis and tackle issues such as homelessness, mental health problems, and food insecurity across the UK, and around the world.
