Families from St Albans and Stevenage enjoyed a special Christmas party organised by local charity Home-Start Herts thanks to a grant from Amazon.

The Amazon Fulfilment Centre in Hemel Hempstead donated £2,000 to enable people helped by the family support charity to celebrate Christmas together.

This is the third time that Amazon Fulfilment Centre has donated to Home-Start Herts, and several members of the centre celebrated with them to learn more about their work.

Amazon’s Hemel Hempstead site leader David Tindal said: “The Amazon team really enjoyed meeting the staff and volunteers from Home-Start Herts and we’re pleased to support an important cause.”

Maggie Charles, operations manager from Home-Start Herts, added: “It’s wonderful to get a donation from Amazon again this year. David and his team continue to support us in our efforts to provide a vital service to families across Hertfordshire and to know that a local business, like Amazon is behind us is really encouraging. I’d like to say thank you to David and the Amazon team for helping us continue to support local vulnerable families in times of need.”
