The local branch of a family support charity has received a £2,000 donation from Amazon.
Staff and volunteers at Home-Start in Northampton received the special delivery as part of Amazon’s local community support programme.
Home-Start works with vulnerable families across Northampton, providing practical aid and emotional support through a series of initiatives including dedicated volunteers and a 1:1 intensive programme of support.
To mark the donation, which will go towards funding further training for volunteers, members of Amazon’s Daventry team visited Home-Start’s Northampton offices. During the visit, the Amazon team learned more about the work that Home-Start carries out in the local community.
Speaking on the donation, Amazon Daventry Site Leader, Victor Pulido, said: “Home-Start is a wonderful organisation which carries out vital work in our community. We’re delighted to be able to support them.”
Bernie Barnes, Scheme Manager at Home-Start Northampton, added: “We’re incredibly grateful to everyone at Amazon for supporting us with this donation. It’s support such as this which enables us to continue working hard for vulnerable families in our community, supporting those who need it most.”
The ongoing support of Home-Start forms part of the ‘Amazon in The Community’ programme whereby the company supports the communities around its operating locations across the UK.
