THE NATIONAL CHILDREN’S TUMOUR LEUKAEMIA CANCER TRUST GOES GOLD WITH AMAZON FOR CHILDREN WITH CANCER 

Amazon in Daventry is raising awareness for Childhood Cancer Awareness month with a special event to highlight the innovative work being done by hospitals and charities to increase the survival rate of children with cancer.

Linking with Amazon colleagues around the world, the Daventry team has joined the global movement, #AmazonGoesGold, hosting a gold-themed #PJammin ® party to support local families affected by childhood cancer. The theme pays tribute to brave children with cancer, who can spend a long period of time living in their pyjamas during treatment and recovery. A gold ribbon is the international symbol for childhood cancer awareness.

During the event, the Amazon team made a £1,000 donation to The National Children’s Tumour Leukaemia Cancer Trust.

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

“The National Children’s Tumour Leukaemia Cancer Trust does vital work in our community and we want to support them and the brave children and families who rely on their care. #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.”

Janet Walker-Smith from The National Children’s Tumour Leukaemia Cancer Trust added:

“On behalf of the The National Children’s Tumour Leukaemia Cancer Trust, I’d like to thank Gareth 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 local Amazon team.”

This is the second year that Amazon in the UK has supported Childhood Cancer Awareness month. This year’s campaign includes a £50,000 donation to Children’s Cancer and Leukaemia Group, a leading national charity for all childhood cancers. CCLG fund and support 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.

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.
