Suicide prevention charity receives donation from Amazon


A NATIONAL suicide prevention charity based in Warrington has received a £2,000 donation from the Amazon fulfilment centre in town.

Papyrus Prevention of Young Suicide is dedicated to reducing the incidence of young people taking their own lives. The charity dismantles the stigma surrounding suicide and empowers young people with the skills to identify and address suicidal behaviour.
The donation from Amazon will go towards supporting the charity’s confidential HOPELINE247 service, which offers help and advice to young people and anyone who is worried about a young person who may be having thoughts of suicide. The donation will also help Papyrus to engage with local communities and volunteers in suicide prevention projects and support the training which is delivered to individuals and groups, equipping people with the skills to recognise and respond to suicidal behaviour.

Christian Stewart, site leader at Amazon in Warrington,said: “Papyus plays a crucial role in our community, ensuring that young people receive the support and care they need before and in case of distress. We are pleased to support the charity, and we hope that this donation assists Papyrus in continuing its work in Warrington and nationwide.”
Wendy Lister, an employee at Amazon in Warrington, added: “I’m so pleased that Amazon has made this donation to Papyrus. It’s a charity very close to my heart as it provides brilliant support to young people.”
Ged Flynn, chief executive of Papyrus said: “Suicide remains the leading cause of death among young people in the UK. Our goal is to make sure there are resources available to aid young people experiencing hard times, so that they know there are people who care about them. Contributions like this enable us to sustain our essential work at the local level and we thank Amazon for it.”
