AMAZON staff in Dunfermline took a leap of faith and raised thousands of pounds for charity.

A group of workers completed an abseil off the Forth Bridge recently and £3,120 is now going to Children's Hospices Across Scotland (CHAS).

Since 2018, the local fulfilment centre has donated more than £15,000 to the charity, including a £2,500 donation to its Rachel House hospice in Kinross.

Graham Allison, general manager at Amazon in Dunfermline, said: “CHAS is an extremely important charity that provides invaluable support across Scotland and it’s a pleasure to offer our continued support.

"Our team had a great time during the abseil and it’s brilliant that we can continue to raise money for such a wonderful charity.”

For more than two decades, CHAS has been providing a full family support service for babies, children and young people with life-shortening conditions.

The staff and volunteers care for children at home, in hospital and in Rachel or Robin House, in Balloch.

In addition, CHAS at Home provides families with the services of a hospice in their own home and the charity’s Diana Children’s Nurses support families and clinical teams in hospitals across the country.

Angharad Low, corporate partnerships manager at CHAS, added: “We are over the moon that the Amazon team decided to take part in the abseil on behalf of CHAS.

"The continued support from the local fulfilment centre is overwhelming and on behalf of everyone at CHAS I would like to say a massive thank you to Graham and his team for their generosity.

"These donations go a long way in helping us support children and families across the country."
