Pinpoint has received a £1,000 donation from the Amazon fulfilment centre in Peterborough.

The donation from Amazon will go towards providing additional information sessions and peer support groups for parents and carers.

Tomislav Batinic, Site Leader at Amazon in Peterborough, said:

“Pinpoint makes a great difference to the lives of many people in our community, and we’re delighted to support them with this donation.”

Sarah from Pinpoint added:

“We’d like to say a big thank you to Tomislav and the team at Amazon in Peterborough for this donation. The support is hugely appreciated and will help us continue to provide parents and carers across Cambridgeshire with the best support.”

Community donations and employee volunteering are just two of the ways Amazon supports the communities where it operates. Amazon has supported more than 500,000 students across the UK with free computer science and STEM education programmes through Amazon Future Engineer.

Amazon helps community organisations transport meals and other essentials to families in need through its pro bono logistics programme, Amazon Local Good, including more than seven million healthy breakfasts to children at risk of hunger in partnership with Magic Breakfast. And through its Multibank initiative, co-founded with former UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown, Amazon has supported more than 200,000 families experiencing poverty, with the donation of more than 2 million surplus essential goods.

Amazon partners with Comic Relief to help people tackle poverty and is the official home of the charity’s iconic Red Nose. Last year, together with its employees, customers, and partners, Amazon raised over £2.7 million to fund projects that support people struggling with the cost-of-living crisis and tackle issues such as homelessness, mental health problems, and food insecurity across the UK, and around the world.
