Lee Shepherd, site leader at Amazon in Peterborough, said: “Children of Adam is an important charity here in Peterborough and is a lifeline for some of our community’s most vulnerable people.

“The team at Amazon in Peterborough is pleased to provide this support as the volunteers of Children of Adam continue their vital work in the local area and beyond.”

Shujah Saklain from Children of Adam added: “Like all charities, we wouldn’t be able to help people in need without the support of local businesses like Amazon so it’s great to get this donation from Lee and his team.

“The money will help us continue to offer support for local homeless people and we’re grateful to the team at Amazon in Peterborough for this kind gesture.”

Children of Adam relies on donations to be able to carry out charitable work, not just here at home, but also all over the world. To donate, please visit the website at
