Amazon’s special delivery for Exeter charity helping bereaved children

Staff and volunteers at an Exeter charity supporting bereaved children received a special delivery – when Amazon’s city delivery station team stopped by with £2,000.

Balloons says the donation will go towards arts and crafts materials such as memory boxes and pebbled, books, journals, picture frames.

All of the items are used in cause’s one-to-one sessions with young people.

It was part of the ‘Amazon In The Community’ programme, where the company supports the communities around its operating locations across the UK.

Balloons supports bereaved children and young people across Exeter when someone significant in their lives dies.

To mark the donation, members of Amazon’s city delivery station team visited Balloons to meet some of the staff and volunteers and learn more about what they do.

Sara Bennett, CEO of Balloons, said: “We’re really thankful to receive this support from Amazon and it was great to meet the team.

“To have a business like Amazon behind us is really encouraging. This donation will go towards helping the young children in Exeter who have been bereaved.”

Amazon’s Exeter delivery station manager, ​​Jon Lasker, said: “On behalf of the Amazon team in Exeter I would like to say a big thank you to Balloons charity for inviting our team to meet some of the staff and volunteers. We’re pleased to provide this donation to such a brilliant cause.”
