A COWDENBEATH suicide and bereavement charity has received a welcome donation from Amazon in Dunfermline.

The Curly Star Dream Foundation received £1,000 to help its work supporting those who are suffering from suicidal thoughts or those who have lost someone to suicide by hosting mental health advice workshops.

The organisation was set up by the family of Candice Easton, who sadly died by suicide in 2005.

The money will be put towards a future project, working with staff and pupils in local primary schools.

Jamie Strain, General Manager at the fulfilment centre, said: “The Curly Star Dream Foundation is an amazing charity that provides essential support to grieving families and to those who are suffering from mental health problems.

"I am glad that we can make this donation to support its work.”

Jackie Easton, Chairperson of The Curly Star Dream Foundation, was delighted with the cash boost.

“I would like to say thank you to Jamie and the Amazon team in Dunfermline for this donation," she said. "This support will allow us to continue providing vital support to those who are struggling with their mental health or are grieving the loss of a loved one.”

The donation to The Curly Star Dream Foundation was made as part of Amazon’s programme to support the communities in and around its operating locations across the UK.
