A Plymouth charity that provides support for children, young people and their families when facing grief has received a donation of £2,500 from the Amazon delivery station team in the city to help it continue to support the local community.
Jeremiah’s Journey, a charity that offers free support to children and young people who have experienced or are anticipating a bereavement, received the donation as part Amazon’s programme to support the communities around its operating locations across the UK.
Jeremiah’s Journey supports approximately 350 children each year, through its nine-week therapeutic group programmes, individual sessions, advice line and family days. The charity has also recently launched a new youth group and a stories group, as well as offering training to schools and professionals.  
Gem Pope from Amazon in Plymouth, said: “Jeremiah’s Journey is doing vital work in our community to help those most in need and we wanted to support their efforts with this local donation. The services offered by the charity’s staff and volunteers have never been more important and I’d like to thank them for everything they’re doing for our community during these challenging times.”

Julie Spencer, Operations Manager at Jeremiah’s Journey added: “On behalf of the team at Jeremiah’s Journey, I want to say thank you to the team from Amazon in Plymouth. We are passionate about the work we do and donations like this are a big help for us to continue supporting our community.”

Community donations are one of a number of ways in which Amazon is supporting communities across the UK during COVID-19.
Amazon is providing disadvantaged students with online STEM courses as well as teaming up with charity partner Magic Breakfast and delivering more than three and a half million healthy breakfasts to families around the UK.
