A bereavement support charity set by a Rugby mum in memory of her little boy, has received a £1,000 donation.

Charlotte Jolliffe is the driving force behind Freddie’s Wish, a charity for parents who have lost a baby or child.

The charity also offers paediatric first aid courses for parents and carers and has trained over 1,500 people in paediatric first aid since 2015.

The Amazon donation will go towards training people on the charity’s paediatric first aid awareness course.

To mark the donation, the team from Freddie’s Wish visited the Amazon fulfilment centre in Rugby to provide paediatric first aid lessons to 15 Amazon employees.

Constantin Paddure, an employee from Amazon in Rugby who took part in the first aid lessons, said: “As a parent, paediatric first aid skills are vital, and I’m so thankful to learn this from the team at Freddie’s Wish.”
