Childhood Cancer charity, Children’s Cancer and Leukaemia Group (CCLG), received a special donation of £50,000 from the local Amazon team in Daventry.  

The donation was made after the team in Daventry won a national competition run by Amazon UK during #AmazonGoesGold.

In September, Amazon held special gold-themed #PJammin ® parties across its UK operating locations to raise awareness for Childhood Cancer Awareness month. Each Amazon team, including Daventry, wore their pyjamas and covered the Amazon buildings in gold decorations to pay tribute to brave children with cancer, who can spend long periods of time living in their pyjamas during treatment and recovery.

Teams across Amazon’s UK network were challenged to have the most participants dressed in their pyjamas during the #PJammin ® parties. The winning team received £50,000 to donate to Children’s Cancer and Leukaemia Group, a leading national charity for all childhood cancers.   

CCLG funds and supports innovative, world-class research to drive forward improvements in treatment and care and to ensure children with cancer survive and live happy, healthy and independent lives.

Speaking on the event, Gareth Davies Site Leader at Amazon in Daventry said:

“Children’s Cancer and Leukaemia Group is a fantastic charity that helps so many children and families across Daventry and beyond and we are pleased that our team secured the donation for such a worthy cause. #AmazonGoesGold is an incredible initiative that brings all Amazon colleagues together not only in the UK, but globally, as we seek to raise awareness around childhood cancer and shed light on the innovative work being done by researchers, hospitals and charities to increase the survival rate of children.”

Ashley Gamble, Chief Executive, CCLG added:

“On behalf of the Children’s Cancer and Leukaemia Group, I’d like to thank Gareth Davies and his team for putting on their PJs to show their support for children impacted by cancer and for providing this donation. We are very appreciative of the #AmazonGoesGold movement and glad that the work done by our team is being supported by the Amazon team in Daventry.”

More than 400,000 children around the world are diagnosed with paediatric cancer each year and it is the number one non-communicable disease causing the death of children around the world. #AmazonGoesGold expands beyond the UK and North America to Italy, Spain, Germany, France, Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Japan and Australia to bring greater awareness around childhood cancer globally. Over the course of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, Amazon will donate more than £100,000 to local UK hospitals, charities and research organisations and more than $4 million globally in the fight against childhood cancer.

The event and donation forms part of the ‘Amazon in the Community’ programme whereby the company supports the communities around its operating locations across the UK.
