A DONATION is music to the ears of care leavers in South Craven and across North Yorkshire.

Amazon has given speakers and headphones to help keep-up the spirits of the young people during lockdown.

The contribution, part of Amazon’s Small Acts of Kindness programme, is in addition to 300 goody bags provided by North Yorkshire County Council.

County Councillor Janet Sanderson, executive member for children’s services, said: “It’s fantastic that these gifts have been given to our care leavers.

“It’s nice to get a boost in these difficult times and the delivery of headphones and speakers will help the young people get through lockdown.

“The council is committed to working hard to support emotional and physical wellbeing and the care packages show that.”

Amazon said it was delighted to be able to contribute.

A spokesman added: “We applaud all the work the council is doing and hope the donated items will be beneficial and thoroughly enjoyed.”
