Members of the team from Amazon’s fulfilment centre on Flaxley Road, at Fletton, visited the Little Miracles’Hartwell Way facility to deliver hundreds of pounds worth of gardening equipment as part of the company’s community support programme.

The equipment, which includes a lawnmower, garden table, a gazebo, spades, watering cans, a potting table, hand tools, gloves and more will be used by the charity as part of its outdoor play and learning activities during the summer.

Speaking after making the surprise delivery, Amazon Peterborough’s Site Leader Lee Shepherd said: “We’ve got a few really keen gardeners at Amazon in Peterborough and they suggested that we donate some equipment to a local charity to encourage kids to try gardening this summer.
