- Daventry News - Children’s charity welcomes donation from Amazon in Daventry
A charity that offers real hair wigs to children who have lost their own hair has received a donation of £500 from the Amazon fulfilment centre in Daventry.
The Little Princess Trust, based in Herefordshire, supports children and young people who have lost their hair through cancer treatment or other conditions. The charity also funds various research projects focused on finding more effective treatments for childhood cancers.
Simone Skinner, who works at the Amazon fulfilment centre in Daventry, nominated the charity for support after donating 17 inches of her own hair to The Little Princess Trust.
Simone said: “Little Princess Trust is a fantastic charity and I’m pleased we’ve been able to support them. I really enjoyed the experience of donating my hair and would urge anyone who can to do so.”
David Hall, Site Leader at Amazon in Daventry, added: “The wigs this charity provides give children and young people dealing with cancer such a boost, and we’re pleased to support the team at The Little Princess Trust with this donation.”
Wendy Tarplee-Morris, Founder of The Little Princess Trust said: “We have provided more wigs than ever before over the past 12 months, so we are extremely grateful to David and the team at Amazon in Daventry for this donation. It is also wonderful to hear about Simone’s incredible haircut. Our longest wigs remain our most popular and so her lengthy locks will help us keep up with the demand.”
The Little Princess Trust received the donation as part of Amazon’s programme to support communities in and around its operating locations throughout the UK.
Amazon is providing 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 across England.
