This donation will be used to purchase items which will help improve patient experience at the hospital; the small extras that can make a stay as an inpatient or a visit as an outpatient that bit more comfortable.

David Benfell, General Manager at Amazon’s Doncaster iPort fulfilment centre said: “DBTH provides important support for the hospitals in our community, and we are pleased that we can lend a helping hand with this donation.”

A DBTH spokesperson said: “We are dedicated to supporting the hospitals in our community and it’s fantastic to receive this donation from the Amazon team.”
