The Amazon fulfilment centre in Swansea has made a £1,000 donation to Maggie’s Cancer Centre (Maggie’s) following a fundraising walk around the Gower Peninsula.

Maggie’s provides cancer support through a network of centres across the UK and abroad, supporting people living with cancer, their family and loved ones through its team of specialists, psychologists and benefits advisors.

Maggie’s Cancer Centre adjacent to Singleton Hospital in Swansea was built by the world renowned Japanese architect Kisho Kurokawa, and opened in 2011.

The team at the Amazon fulfilment centre in Swansea recently arranged a walk around Gower in aid of Maggie’s. This donation from Amazon was made on behalf of those who took part and will go towards the programme of free support provided to visitors.

Omer Kartal, Site Leader at Amazon in Swansea, said: “Charities like Maggie’s are vital in our community, and at Amazon we are pleased to support their efforts. The work done by the team of staff and volunteers at Maggie’s is life changing to those in need of their services and we’re happy to support them with this donation.”

The charity was nominated for support by Michael Walkowicz, an Area Manager at Amazon in Swansea. He added:

“I was so pleased that my idea for a fundraising walk was met with such enthusiasm from the Amazon team. A great day was had by all, and I’m delighted to be able to help a charity that does so much for our community.”

We aim to provide the support necessary to ensure the joy of living can outweigh the fear of dying. We rely on the kindness of the community to continue our work and owe a big thanks to Omer and the team at Amazon in Swansea for supporting us.”

The donation to Maggie’s was made as part of Amazon’s programme to support the communities in and around its operating locations across the UK.
