AMAZON’s Worcester delivery station has donated £2,000 to the Children’s Cancer and Leukaemia Group as part of a community programme.

The group received the donation as part of the ‘Amazon In The Community’ scheme, where the company supports the communities around its operating locations across the UK.

To mark the donation, a charity representative visited Amazon’s delivery station in Worcester to meet the team.

Amazon’s Worcester delivery station manager, Marcus Gorman, said: “It’s absolutely wonderful to have the opportunity to support the work of CCLG with this donation.

“The group offer such vital support to children with cancer and we’re pleased to fund part of that work.

“It was lovely to meet the charity representative and hear about all the ways CCLG offer care to families across the country.”

Gill Smitherman, head of fundraising at the Children’s Cancer and Leukaemia Group, said: “On behalf of myself and everyone at CCLG I want to say a huge thank you to the Amazon team in Worcester for this donation.

“It was especially lovely to meet Marcus and the Amazon Worcester team and to thank them all.”

More than £64,000 has been donated to the Children’s Cancer and Leukaemia Group by Amazon so far.

The Children’s Cancer and Leukaemia Group is a leading national charity for all childhood cancers and supports innovative, world-class research to drive forward improvements in treatment and care and to ensure children with cancer survive and live happy lives.
