A charity that supports young people living with Tourette Syndrome in Scotland has received a donation of £1,000 from the Amazon fulfilment centre in Dunfermline.

Tourette Scotland offers events, outings and support for children and adults living with Tourette Syndrome across Scotland, including Fife. The charity works with individuals living with Tourette Syndrome and their families to support them and help them achieve their goals, as well as raising awareness about the condition.

The donation went towards a 10th birthday party for the Fife branch at Lochore Meadows, helping to fund a celebration for the young people the charity supports, including a BBQ, games and a raffle. The money also helped to fund a weekend away for the group.

Speaking on the donation, Amazon Dunfermline Site Lead Graham Allison, said: "Tourette Scotland has done amazing work in our community over the last ten years, raising awareness of the condition and guiding families in the local area. We were more than happy to offer a helping hand for the charity’s birthday celebrations, and we hope everyone involved had a brilliant time."

Kyla McDonald, from Tourette Scotland, added: "We were thrilled when the team in Dunfermline got in touch and offered to support our birthday. Events like this are so important for bringing everyone together and building awareness of Tourette Syndrome in the community. On behalf of everyone here I’d like to take the chance to say thank you to the team at Amazon Dunfermline for this generous donation.”

The donation forms part of the ‘Amazon in the Community’ programme whereby the company supports the communities around its operating locations across the UK.
