Amazon has donated money to PEDS

Peterborough-based Personalised Eating Disorder Support is a specialist charity which supports people right across the country. The charity can provide individual services and family sessions which include practical help, education and support.

The donation will help staff with the much-needed IT equipment to support its service users and families remotely. It will also increase the charity’s capacity to be able to fund a specialist nutritionist to benefit people who use the charity and their families.

Gareth Davies, site lead at Amazon in Peterborough, said: “We are pleased to make this donation to Personalised Eating Disorder Support. The charity provides specialist care for people struggling with eating disorders and we appreciate this service the staff and volunteers provide for our community.”
