The money will go towards equipping their horticulture study area.

Shez Webb, headteacher at the Kingsthorpe school, said: “Our students love their time at Northgate School Arts College and they were all excited to meet the Amazon team when they stopped by.

"This donation will make a big difference in helping us set up our horticulture area and to buy the specialised equipment some of our young people need. On behalf of everyone here I’d like to thank David and his team for their generosity."

The school was nominated for support by a member of the team at Amazon Daventry.

"At Amazon we believe in giving young people the opportunities to achieve their potential and Northgate School Arts College does exactly that. It was fantastic to meet everyone at the school and see some of the hard work that goes into giving pupils here such a great experience."
