See what happened at our Fantastic Garden Tea Party Thank You to our Wonderful Community who attended!

One van went to mow

Amazon Logistics station DBR1 made a special delivery this week when the team donated a new, petrol lawnmower to a local organisation. The Belvedere Community Centre (BCC) is just one mile from the AMZL site and provides facilities and activities for the local community. In particular, the Centre collaborates and works with other local charities and organisations like the Smerdon Day Centre (SDC) which supports adults with learning disabilities and teaches them new skills for independent living. BCC commissions SDC to carry out gardening and grounds maintenance not only for the benefit of the people of Belvedere but also to enable SDC beneficiaries to gain work experience.

 

Amazon Logistics donated the lawnmower and then delivered it in an Amazon branded van via the Community Operations’ Access program – which matches AMZL’s Amazon’s end-to-end logistics expertise and technology with the needs of community organisations. 

 

Julie Fyffe, Governance Manager for the centre said: “The Trustees, staff of BCC and the people of Belvedere are very grateful for this generous donation that will be utilised constantly to keep our grounds neat and tidy! We are overwhelmed by AMZL’s DBR1 generosity and interest in our community. We very much look forward to future cooperation and working together on upcoming projects including the new Belvedere Community Gardening Club to be announced soon. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Rhod, his team and all at DBR1 for this fantastic donation and commitment to our community. We would also like to thank Francesca Waite of AMZL for her enthusiasm and support.”

  

Rhod Taylor, Delivery Station Manager added: “DBR1 decided to make the lawnmower donation as we recognise the importance of this gardening service for young people in Belvedere. It’s been awesome to see how useful the new lawnmower will be, and I look forward to continuing our partnership with Julie and the team.”

 

DBR1 will further support the community centre with a donation station where Amazon associates can contribute food items to the Belvedere Community Fridge (a help-yourself service run by the community centre). The DBR1 team is also looking into opportunities to volunteer at the centre. 

 

The Belvedere Community Centre is looking for ‘green-fingered’ members of the public who can provide gardening advice to their staff and users. If you’re interested in supporting your local community centre, please contact Julie on 0208 311 5550 or via e-mail: office@belvederecentre.org.uk .
