Wythenshawe Community Initiative has received a donation of £1,000 from Amazon.
The community centre provides a wealth of services to children and families – their Play Service provides free, open access play focused activities for young people aged five to 13.
Other projects include the Holiday Play Schemes, Child Contact Centre, Mobile Crèche services and Stepping Stones Playgroup.
The centre also recently celebrated a nomination for ‘Community Group of the Year’ at Wythenshawe Community Housing Group’s Community Awards.
The donation will be used to support the Child Contact Centre, which helps separated parents re-build relationships with their children.
Clare North, manager of the Wythenshawe Community Initiative, said: We are thrilled to welcome this donation to our centre for our Contact Centre.
“Families within our community depend on our services and donations like this ensure we can continue to improve the quality of life for our local children and young people.”
The donation forms part of the ‘Amazon in the Community’ programme whereby the company supports the communities around its operating locations across the UK.
Ashley Cowen, general manager for the nearby Amazon Manchester fulfilment centre, said, “We are happy to provide a donation to Wythenshawe Community Initiative and support their services.
“Their team of staff and volunteers are dedicated to meeting the needs of our community and make a lasting impact on our local families and children.”
