A GOLDEN donation of £6,000 has been delivered to CHAS (Children’s Hospices Across Scotland) from workers at the Amazon fulfilment centre in Dunfermline.

The money was raised as part of the firm's global Amazon Goes Gold campaign, which supports Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.

Now in its fifth year, #AmazonGoesGold is a global initiative to highlight, support and amplify the incredible work done by many organisations to increase survival rates through life-saving treatments and research.

The initiative saw the team at Amazon in Dunfermline hold a month-long series of gold-themed events in recognition of the international colour for childhood cancer.

One of the events this year was a 48-hour PJammin’ party which saw staff join colleagues across the UK by wearing pyjamas to work in honour of children who spend every day in their PJs during treatment.

Amazon Dunfermline general manager Jamie Strain said they were pleased to be able to support CHAS. "We hope the donation provides a boost to the staff and volunteers who do so much for the children in our community,” he said.

Lara MacDonald, senior corporate partnerships executive at CHAS, added: “We are very appreciative of the Amazon Goes Gold movement and glad that the work done by CHAS to support children with life-shortening conditions and their families is being supported by the local Amazon team.

"We hope the staff enjoyed their PJammin’ party.”
