A Norwich-based charity has received a welcome cash boost just in time for Christmas after a donation from Amazon.
The retail giant's 'Amazon in the Community' initiative donated £2,000 to The Hamlet, which has two locations in the city and works to break down barriers for people living with disabilities.
Through its charity programme, Amazon aims to contribute to the communities where its delivery stations and other sites are based.
Staff also visited The Hamlet to see what the charity's team of paid workers and volunteers do to help others.
Amazon's Norwich delivery station manager Steven Hubbard said: "On behalf of the Amazon team in Norwich I would like to say a big thank you to The Hamlet for inviting our team to meet some of the staff and learn more about the work they do.
