Volunteers at a local children’s hospice received a special delivery when the team from Amazon’s delivery station in Enfield stopped by with a £1,000 donation.
Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice received the donation as part of the ‘Amazon In The Community’ programme, where the company supports the communities around its operating locations across the UK.
Noah’s Ark supports families living in London and Hertsmere by providing clinical, practical and emotional support to babies, children and young people with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions.
To mark the donation, members of Amazon’s Enfield Delivery Station team visited Noah’s Ark to meet some of the staff and volunteers.
Amazon’s Enfield Delivery Station Manager, Kasey Alms, said:
“On behalf of the Amazon team in Enfield I would like to say a big thank you to Noah’s Ark for inviting our team to meet some of the staff and volunteers. We’re pleased to provide this donation to such a worthy cause and hope it goes towards helping Noah’s Ark support more families within our community.”
Sophie Ridge from Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice added:
“We’re really thankful to receive this support from Amazon in Enfield and it was great to meet the team. To have a business like Amazon behind us is really encouraging. This donation will help us continue the vital work we do for families across the area.”
