GENEROUS workers at Amazon in Gourock are helping yet another good cause.
Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity (formerly known as Yorkhill Children’s Charity) has received £2,500 from the Gourock fulfilment centre.
Amazon staff spent time with some of the young patients and their families at the Royal Hospital for Children, while learning more about the charity’s work from the specialist nurses who treat the youngsters.
The charity works at the heart of the hospital to raise money to ensure that Scotland’s children and their families receive the best possible care.
Amazon’s Gourock charity committee chose to make a donation towards the charity to support the purchase of innovative medical equipment, beds for parents and carers and enhanced play rooms and fun activities for the children.
Gourock manager, Gavin Morrison, said he was incredibly impressed to hear about the charity’s research strategy.
He said: “It is deepening the overall understanding of child health and the conditions that the young patients face. It is evident that, every day, young patients and their families benefit from the support of this incredibly important charity.”
The charity’s fundraising director, Kirsten Sinclair, thanked everyone at Amazon for their generosity.
She said: “Without the support of local companies and other public donations we could not help the hospital to achieve the standard of care provided.”
