A Hertfordshire mental health charity has received a donation of £1,000 from Amazon’s fulfilment centre team in Hemel Hempstead.
Herts Mind Network delivers essential mental health support to enable people to recover from or live with mental ill health. The charity encompasses a diverse range of services, operating seven wellbeing centres and other venues across Hertfordshire.
The donation follows similar support offered to the charity by the fulfilment centre over the last three years. This year’s donation will go towards furnishing their Wellbeing Centre in Hemel Hempstead which is where the Nightlight weekend Crisis Centre is based. The crisis centre has four beds and provides a safe, homely and welcoming space for people who are feeling distressed and experiencing a crisis.
John McEwen, site leader at Amazon in Hemel Hempstead, said: ‘People in our community are requiring support to maintain good mental health more than ever, so it made perfect sense for us to support a charity that is committed to providing these services in our community. We look forward to building on our relationship with this charity in 2022 and beyond.’
Caroline McGoohan, from Herts Mind Network, added: ‘We are humbled to receive a donation from Amazon for the third year in a row and are thankful to John and his team for their continued support as we help those in the community who are struggling.’
The donation to Herts Mind Network was made as part of Amazon’s programme to support the communities around its operating locations across the UK.
Amazon is 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 in England.
