Amazon Rugby Makes £1,000 Donation to Together for Short Lives for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

Amazon and employee volunteers in Rugby have donated £1,000 to Together for Short Lives as part of the company’s global Amazon Goes Gold campaign during Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. 

Amazon Goes Gold is Amazon’s annual campaign to raise awareness and funds during Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. In addition to partnering with hospitals and research organisations around the world, Amazon also wraps a selection of its delivery fleet in gold ribbons during the month of September to further increase awareness across its network. The Amazon Goes Gold campaign was launched in 2017.

Andy Fletcher, Chief Executive Officer of Together for Short Lives, said:

“It’s fantastic to see so many of the team at Amazon in Rugby come to work in their pyjamas in support of Childhood Cancer Awareness month. I’d like to thank David and the local team for raising awareness through #AmazonGoesGold and for providing us with a donation, which will be greatly appreciated by everyone at Together for Short Lives”

While we’re all facing a global pandemic, more than 300,000 children will also be diagnosed with paediatric cancer this year, and it’s the number one non-communicable disease causing the death of children around the world.

“We’re incredibly proud to partner with Together for Short Lives for Amazon Goes Gold,” said David Tindal, Site Leader at the Rugby Amazon fulfilment centre. “We want patients and kids everywhere affected by childhood cancer to imagine the future innovators in themselves. It’s an honour to make a difference for such an important cause that affects families around the world.”

This donation will support Together for Short Lives in its mission to help children living with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions get the very best care and support they can.
