Helping children in the care system

Posted onPosted on 20th Feb

A charity that supports young people in the care system has received a £1,000 donation from the Amazon fulfilment centre, Sutton.

Become provides essential practical and emotional support as well as campaigning for a better children’s care system.

It also holds the annual Become Players, a gaming event that encourages the community to come together and raise funds.

Vivek Khanka, general manager at the Sutton centre, said: “Become offers important support to care-experienced young people in our community, who don’t have a family or support network to fall back on.

“I hope this donation will aid the charity’s efforts and boost the support services it provides.”

Cerys Shepherd, director of fundraising at Become, added: “On behalf of everyone at Become, I thank Amazon. We’ll use this money to help more care-experienced children and young people get the support they need in 2024.”
