AMAZON CONTINUES TO SUPPORT LOCAL FOOTBALL CLUB
GRAYS Athletic Youth football team has received a £1,500 donation from the Amazon fulfilment centre in Tilbury. This marks the second year running that the Amazon team has supported the football club, following a £1,500 donation in 2018.
Leigh Diprose, a local Amazon Associate coaches at Grays Athletic Youth, a community run football club based in Grays. This year the club has used the donation to fund new equipment and a pitch for the season.
Sertac Yilmaz, General Manager at Amazon in Tilbury, said: “It’s a pleasure to offer our support to Grays Athletic Youth. Seeing young people develop a real passion for sport is refreshing. We are thrilled that we can continue to back Leigh and his team with this donation, and we hope this will encourage more people across the community to get involved in local sport.”
Leigh Diprose, Coach at Grays Athletic Youth and Amazon Associate in Tilbury added: “On behalf of everyone involved at Grays Athletic Youth, I’d like to say a huge thank you to Sertac and my Amazon team for their generous donation and continued support.”
The donation forms part of the ‘Amazon in the Community’ programme whereby the company supports the communities around its operating locations across the UK.
