THE Amazon team at the receive centre in Coventry has made a £1,000 donation to Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity as part of the company’s global Amazon Goes Gold campaign during September’s Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.
Now in its fifth year, #AmazonGoesGold is a global initiative to highlight, support and amplify the incredible work done by many organisations to increase survival rates through life-saving treatments and research.
This year’s charity partners include the Starlight Foundation, Together for Short Lives, and the Children’s Cancer and Leukaemia Group.
Amazon Goes Gold saw the team at Amazon in Coventry hold a month-long series of gold-themed events.
One of the events this year was a 48-hour PJammin’ party, the team in Coventry joined colleagues across the UK by wearing pyjamas to work in honour of children who spend every day in their PJs during treatment.
Amazon Coventry general manager, Paul Roberts, said: “It’s fantastic to support Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity as part of this year’s Amazon Goes Gold campaign and we hope the donation provides a boost to the staff and volunteers who do so much for the children in our community.”
