A COMMUNITY wellbeing charity in Inverclyde has received £1,000 from the Amazon fulfilment centre in Gourock.
Safe Harbour works with people experiencing complex emotional trauma.
The charity supports people by increasing self-esteem and self-worth and reducing self-loathing, as well as helping people to improve their coping skills, to allow people to manage their own complex issues safely.
In 2016, the Amazon team in Gourock offered technological support to Safe Harbour by advising them on the best beginner IT equipment to purchase. This month’s donation from Amazon will be put towards upgrading the IT infrastructure that the Amazon team initially helped create for the charity.
Lorna Sharples, site leader at Amazon in Gourock, said: “We are so pleased to have built such a great relationship with Safe Harbour. We are proud that the charity’s expansion means it has outgrown the original IT infrastructure we helped them to put in place, so wanted to support the upgrade with this donation.”
Duncan Shaw, chief executive at Safe Harbour, said: “The team from Amazon in Gourock has done so much for us over the years and we are thankful for their support. We can’t wait to get our new systems up and running so that we can continue to help those in the community who need us.”
