The Amazon team in Daventry has donated Christmas presents to hospital patients.

The gifts were given to Northamptonshire Health Charity which provides funding for equipment, research, training and more to comfort people when in hospital.

A team of 12 volunteers from Amazon’s Daventry fulfilment centre visited the charity to sort and pack the gifts, including books and games, for patients who will spend Christmas in Northamptonshire General Hospital.

Community donations and employee volunteering are just two of the ways Amazon supports the communities in and around its operating locations across the UK. Amazon provides students, teachers and parents with free computer science and STEM education programmes through Amazon Future Engineer and has teamed up with charity partner Magic Breakfast to deliver more than seven million healthy breakfasts to children at risk of hunger in disadvantaged areas of the country.

Earlier this year, Amazon partnered with Comic Relief to become the official home of the Red Nose. Amazon employees across the UK hosted fundraising activities and together with their customers and partners, raised £2.7 million to support those going through the toughest time of their lives.
