Childhood Cancer Highlighted in Amazon Dunstable £1,000 Donation

  • Amazon and employee volunteers in Dunstable have donated £1,000 to Luton and Dunstable University Hospital as part of the company’s global Amazon Goes Gold campaign during Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.


Amazon Goes Gold is Amazon’s annual campaign to raise awareness and funds during Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. In addition to partnering with hospitals and research organisations around the world, Amazon also wraps a selection of its delivery fleet in gold ribbons during the month of September to further increase awareness across its network. The Amazon Goes Gold campaign was launched in 2017.

Bianca-lee-John, Community Fundraiser at Luton and Dunstable University Hospital, said, “It’s fantastic to see so many of the team at Amazon in Dunstable come to work in their pyjamas in support of Childhood Cancer Awareness month. I’d like to thank Ruzanna and the local team for raising awareness through #AmazonGoesGold and for providing us with a donation, which will be greatly appreciated by everyone at Luton and Dunstable University Hospital.”

While we’re all facing a global pandemic, more than 300,000 children will also be diagnosed with pediatric cancer this year, and it’s the number one non-communicable disease causing the death of children around the world.

“We’re incredibly proud to partner with Luton and Dunstable University Hospital for Amazon Goes Gold,” said Ruzanna Sargsyan, Site Leader at the Dunstable Amazon fulfilment centre. “We want patients and kids everywhere affected by childhood cancer to imagine the future innovators in themselves. It’s an honour to make a difference for such an important cause that affects families around the world.”

This donation will support Luton and Dunstable University Hospital in its mission to care for children in the local community with cancer.
