Bexley's Volunteer Police Cadets have been out and about this week with Santa and his sleigh, dispensing Christmas cheer and collecting for local causes.
The cadets have been volunteering their time after school and college to help members of the Rotary Club of Erith spread Christmas cheer and goodwill while collecting money for charity.
Sgt Paul Williams said: “It’s great that our cadets have been taking the time to help the Rotary Club collect for those less fortunate than themselves. This is another fantastic example of the great work our cadets do to help the local community and charities.”
Volunteer Police Cadets is a voluntary organisation for young people aged 10-19 which allows them to volunteer, learn new skills, help the police with operations, meet new people and develop leadership skills and prepare for a career in policing.
They meet once a week where they take part in physical training and drills, listen to talks or take part in volunteering activities in the community.
The Rotary Club is a not-for-profit international organisation with thousands of local clubs across the world.
Their mission is to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through the improvement of health, the support of education, and the alleviation of poverty.
Members spend their time fundraising for worthy causes in their local areas and abroad.
Erith’s Rotary Club meet every Wednesday at 1pm at Erith Yacht Club.
