The team at the Amazon fulfilment centre in Peterborough has donated £1,000 to Macmillan Cancer Support to mark Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

More than 400 employees at Amazon in Peterborough wore pink t-shirts and dyed their hair pink to mark Breast Cancer Awareness Month and to show their support for the cause.

The Amazon team also raised over £900 for Breast Cancer Now by selling homemade cakes.

Macmillan offers support for people living with and affected by cancer, providing services such as a dedicated support line, specialist nurses and information and support centres.

The charity also provides grants and cancer information guides.

Tomislav Batinic, site leader at Amazon in Peterborough, said: “I’m very proud of the team for supporting such an important cause that has touched the lives of so many people.

“We’re pleased we could boost the team’s efforts by donating to a fantastic charity that provides support for those who need it.”
