The group walked from Bathgate to the Dunfermline Fulfilment Centre on Amazon Way, raising £1,740 for the Edinburgh's Women's Aid.

Their generous donation will be used to buy safety devices, food vouchers, clothes and other necessities for those in need.

Completing the walk in just eight hours, the employees teamed up with their colleagues in Bathgate with the goal of raising £1,000 for the charity.

Jamie Strain, general manager at Amazon in Dunfermline, said: “We are proud of the men and women from Amazon in Dunfermline and Bathgate who took part in the fundraising walk for Edinburgh Women’s Aid. It was great to see their enthusiasm for a good cause and we are grateful to have them on our team.”

Olivia Angus, one of the employees at Amazon in Dunfermline who walked for the cause, said: “From everyone who took part in the walk, we want to say thank you for the support from our team at Amazon in Dunfermline and our colleagues in Bathgate.

"It was great to see the team cheering us on at the finish line. Although the weather was not on our side throughout the walk, we had a great time, and it was worth it to be able to provide a donation for such a worthy cause.”

Edinburgh's Women's Aid give support to women and young people and they aim to provide a safe environment for those who need help and protection from abuse.
