The donation forms part of the “Amazon In The Community” programme whereby 
the company supports the communities around its operating locations across the UK by teaming up with a local charity, and follows a previous donation of £2,500 earlier this year.

Speaking of the donation, Martin Cox, the site leader at Amazon Peterborough, in Fletton, said: “Little Miracles does such a great job in our local community and we couldn’t be happier to be supporting them as our Stand Out charity this year, and we were delighted to be invited along to the fun day.”

Michelle King, from Little Miracles - based at The 
Spinney in Ravensthorpe - added: “We’re incredibly grateful to everyone at Amazon Peterborough for this kind gesture. “This further donation will continue to make a big difference to the children and families we support.

“It means so much to see all the children enjoying themselves on days out like these.

“We’d like to express our gratitude to Martin and the team for their continued support.”
