Phoenix Aid received the donation as part of Amazon’s programme to support the communities around its UK operating locations.

Phoenix Aid provides help, support and advice for victims of domestic violence and abuse. The charity offers refuge to women and children needing a safe place to stay long or short term. The charity now has a shop in Doncaster town centre which is open for the public.

The money will be used to take almost 50 children on a trip to Pleasure Beach in Blackpool, as many of the children have never been to a fun park or the seaside.
