“There are around 20,000 people in Peterborough living with heart and circulatory diseases and every 20 hours someone dies from a heart or circulatory disease in Peterborough so donations like this have never been more needed.”

The BHF received the donation as part of Amazon’s programme to support the communities around its operating locations across the UK.

Amazon is providing disadvantaged students with online STEM courses, as well as teaming up with charity partner Magic Breakfast and delivering more than five million healthy breakfasts to families around the UK.
