Children's Hospice supported by Amazon Sutton-in-Ashfield team

The Amazon fulfilment centre in Sutton-in-Ashfield has made a £2,000 donation to a hospice supporting young patients and their families. 

Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice supports parents and carers to get much-needed time for themselves through respite and short breaks, and looks after siblings who may be feeling sad, lonely, or confused about the situation their family is experiencing.

The hospice also provides music therapy, physiotherapy and end-of-life care and bereavement support for families facing the loss of a child.

Victoria Wharmby, a Finance Manager at Amazon in Sutton-in-Ashfield who nominated the charity for this donation, said:

“The team at Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice does incredible things for families in our community and beyond who face an impossibly difficult time in their lives. I’m really pleased we’re supporting the hospice with this donation.”

Vivek Khanka, Site Leader at Amazon in Sutton-in-Ashfield, added: 

“The team at Sutton-in-Ashfield is pleased to support the great work of Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice. They are a lifeline to many families, and everyone at Amazon in Sutton-in-Ashfield supports the hospice’s staff and volunteers.”

Robert Langley, Communications Officer at Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice, said: 

“Thank you to Vivek and the Amazon Sutton-in-Ashfield team. Without support like this, it wouldn’t be possible for us to continue our work. Donations pay for day trips, fund sessions of sensory play, and much more. Thank you from all at Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice.”

The donation to Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice was made as part of Amazon’s programme to support the communities in and 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 in England.
