AMAZON in Dunfermline has donated £2,500 to Children's Hospice Association Scotland (CHAS) for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.

The funding boost is part of the company's global Amazon Goes Gold campaign and workers dressed in their pyjamas to mark the event.

The fundraising effort started in September 2017 and has run annually ever since in a bid to raise awareness and money for good causes.

Lara MacDonald, senior corporate partnerships executive at CHAS, said: “It’s fantastic to see so many of the team at Amazon in Dunfermline come to work in their pyjamas in support of Childhood Cancer Awareness month.

"I’d like to thank Jamie (Strain, site leader at Amazon Dunfermline) and the local team for raising awareness through #AmazonGoesGold and for providing us with a donation, which will be greatly appreciated by everyone at CHAS."

More than 300,000 children will be diagnosed with paediatric cancer this year, and it’s the number one non-communicable disease causing the death of children around the world.

“We want patients and kids everywhere affected by childhood cancer to imagine the future innovators in themselves," said Jamie.

"It’s an honour to make a difference for such an important cause that affects families around the world.”

This donation will support CHAS in its mission to provide a 'home from home' for families in Rachel House, offering respite, relaxation and support for those going through treatment.
