A charity based in Greater Manchester has received donations totalling £3,000 from the Amazon fulfilment centres in Manchester, Warrington and Bolton.

Community Computers works across Stockport, Trafford and Manchester to recycle donated IT equipment and provide low-cost computers to people in the community. The charity also provides work experience and training to unemployed individuals who have experienced barriers to getting back into work.

The donation from Amazon will go towards providing a community classroom in the heart of the Partington community in Trafford.

Ian Jackson, General Manager at Amazon in Manchester, said:

“In this day and age, access to technology is so important, especially for regaining employment. We’re pleased to make this donation to Community Computers, and we hope it will help make a real difference to those in need of a boost to get back into work.”

Adrian Nottingham from Community Computers, said:

“We would like to say thank you to the teams from Amazon in Manchester, Warrington and Bolton for these donations. We will be putting the money towards the creation of a local community classroom to support residents wanting to learn new digital skills and gain qualifications in ICT and more, this donation will help us hugely. Maybe some of our work experience employees will end up working for Amazon some day?”

Community donations and employee volunteering are just two of the ways Amazon supports the communities where it operates. Amazon co-founded the Multibank initiative with former UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown to support families in poverty. The Multibank ‘Brick-by-Brick’ opened in Wigan in 2023, with The Brick, providing surplus essentials donated by Amazon and others, directly to those in need. The initiative has donated more than 2 million goods to over 200,000 families across Scotland, Wales and Greater Manchester.

Amazon has supported more than 500,000 students across the UK with free computer science and STEM education programmes through Amazon Future Engineer. Amazon helps community organisations transport meals and other essentials to families in need through its pro bono logistics programme, Amazon Local Good, including more than seven million healthy breakfasts to children at risk of hunger in partnership with Magic Breakfast.

Amazon partners with Comic Relief to help people tackle poverty and is the official home of the charity’s iconic Red Nose. Together with its employees, customers, and partners, Amazon has raised over £4.8 million to fund projects that support people struggling with the cost-of-living crisis and tackle issues such as homelessness, mental health problems, and food insecurity across the UK, and around the world.
