FAMILY Charity Gets Christmas Donation From Amazon, Gourock

THE local branch of a national family support charity has received a £2,000 donation from Amazon's Gourock fulfilment centre in time for Christmas.

Staff and volunteers at Home-Start in Renfrewshire and Inverclyde received the special delivery from staff as part of Amazon’s local community support programme.

Home-Start works with vulnerable families in Renfrewshire and Inverclyde, providing practical aid and emotional support through a series of initiatives including dedicated family workers and a one-to-one intensive programme of support.

The charity used the donation to help fund its Christmas party for local families. It follows a similar donation from Amazon during Christmas 2016.

To celebrate the donation, members of the Amazon team from the site in Gourock visited Home-Start’s Christmas party in the Pandamonium Play Centre, Erskine. During the visit, the team learned more about the work that Home-Start continues to carry out in the local community.

Amazon Gourock general manager Gavin Morrison said: “Home-Start is a wonderful organisation that does vital work in our community not just at Christmas, but throughout the year. In 2016, we saw firsthand the impact of its work in Gourock and we’re happy to be back again this year to lend a helping hand with the Christmas party.”

Alison Taylor, scheme manager at Home-Start Renfrewshire and Inverclyde, added: “We’re incredibly grateful to Gavin and his team from Amazon for supporting us once again with this donation. It’s support like this that enables us to continue working hard for the vulnerable families in our community and helps us offer our services to those who need it most.”
