WORKERS at Tilbury's Amazon fulfilment centre have made a £4,000 donation to to the Lennox Children's Cancer Fund in support of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.
As part of the company-wide 'Amazon Goes Gold' project which highlights and supports the work done by many organisations to increase cancer survival rates through life-saving treatments and research, staff in Tilbury held a month-long series of gold-themed events.
The gold theme is in recognition of the international colour for childhood cancer.
One of the events this year was a 48-hour PJammin' party. The team in Tilbury joined colleagues across the UK by wearing pyjamas to work in honour of children who spend every day in their PJs during treatment.
Amazon Tilbury general manager Carlos Guijarro Benito, said: "It's fantastic to support Lennox Children's Cancer Fund 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."
One of the Amazon employees at the fulfilment centre who took part in Amazon Goes Gold is Chinwe Osaghae.
She added: "It's great that Amazon continues to support childhood cancer organisations both here in Essex and around the world. I loved taking part in the activities at our site and I'm glad we are able to make this donation to such a brilliant charity in our community."
