KIND staff at Amazon in Gourock showed a golden touch to raise a four figure sum for two children's charities.

The site at Faulds Park raised £2,000 to split between the Calum's Cabin holiday homes on the Isle of Bute for children suffering from cancer or a related disease, and Robin House - a family support 'home from home' at Children's Hospices Across Scotland (CHAS).

Staff took part in the company's global 'Amazon Goes Gold' campaign to raise funds for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month by donning their nightwear and having a 'pyjamin' party at the local site.

Lorna Sharples, site leader at Gourock, said: "We’re proud to continue our partnerships with Calum's Cabin and Robin House for Amazon Goes Gold.

"The charities are close to our hearts at Amazon in Gourock.

"Their volunteers do incredibly important work for families in our community.

"On behalf of everyone at our Gourock fulfilment centre, I’d like to say a heartfelt thank-you to the teams at Calum's Cabin and Robin House for their support of the community in Inverclyde."

In addition to partnering with hospitals and research organisations around the world, Amazon also wrapped a selection of its delivery fleet in gold ribbons during the month of September to further increase awareness across its network.

Caroline Speirs, chairperson of Calum's Cabin, added: "It’s fantastic to see so many of the team at Amazon in Gourock come to work in their pyjamas in support of Childhood Cancer Awareness month.

"I’d like to thank Lorna and the local team for raising awareness through Amazon Goes Gold and for providing us with a donation, which will be greatly appreciated by everyone at Calum's Cabin."
