The Amazon fulfilment centre in Bolton has donated £2,000 to Barton Moss Primary School in Eccles.

Barton Moss Primary School, which teaches pupils aged 3-11 from across Greater Manchester, plans to use the donation to support the children directly by purchasing resources to promote their outdoor learning in Forest school and Key Stage 1 area.

The school was nominated for support following an appearance some of its pupils made in a recent Amazon video. During Childhood Cancer Awareness Month earlier this year, pupils created a music video in support of Amazon Goes Gold, a global programme to help raise awareness of childhood cancer.

Speaking on the donation, John Strydom, Site Leader at Amazon's Bolton fulfilment centre, said:

"We are pleased to support the staff and pupils at Barton Moss Primary School with this donation. The pupils did a fantastic job supporting our Amazon Goes Gold campaign earlier this year, and we're happy to show our appreciation of their efforts with this donation."

Victoria Unsworth, Head Teacher from Barton Mossy Primary School, added:

"On behalf of everyone at our school, I'd like to thank John and the team at Amazon for this donation. It will help us to provide the children with first-hand experiences during outdoor learning. It is so important for children to develop learning experiences in different ways, and we appreciate the support of the Amazon team."

The donation to the primary school was made as part of Amazon's programme to support the communities around its operating locations in the UK.

Amazon is also providing disadvantaged students with online STEM courses as well as teaming up with charity partner Magic Breakfast and delivering more than five million healthy breakfasts to families around the UK.
