After a successful sponsored walk up Snowdon earlier this year, staff from the Knowsley depot of Amazon Logistics and CEMPS UK visited Listening Ear's '174' premises in Whiston today to hand over a cheque for £2,184.85.

The amount includes the sponsorship and a matched funding donation from the Amazon Charitable Trust.

Listening Ear's CEO Richard Brown said he was delighted to receive the cheque on behalf of our trustees, staff and volunteers and that the money raised would help fund our services supporting those who have experienced domestic abuse, bereavement and loss. 

Tom Fitzsimons, Delivery Station Manager at Amazon's Knowsley depot, visited 174 with team members Ray, Monica, Alex, Lee, Calvin, Tom, Patrick and Derek and the group were given a tour of the premises and an outline of the services provided there by Service Manager Tracy Allen-Lea. 

Tom said that the staff at Amazon Logistics and CEMPS UK were committed to helping local community organisations like Listening Ear, and they appreciated the work being done to support vulnerable children, young people and adults, adding "Amazon takes its responsibility to the community very seriously, so it's a pleasure to be able to support an inspiring project like this which does so much to help those who clearly benefit from its work."
