To celebrate the donation, some members of the Amazon team in Daventry were invited to the café’s dance club.

The team donned their dancing shoes and met some of the regulars.

Nicola Toms at New Street Café said: "Loneliness is something that people don’t often talk about, but it can affect us all.

"At New Street Café, we don’t want anyone in Daventry to feel isolated or lonely and this is why events such as this are vital to building relationships in our community.

The Amazon team also donated an extra 100 to provide afternoon tea at the dance.
