A Pc from Bexleyheath Police Station delivered more than 600 gifts donated as part of the annual Met Police Christmas Tree appeal.

The gifts, delivered to the council by Pc Ashley Green on Friday, December 15 and donated by local people, are for children aged from one week to 17 years old in need across the borough. They were picked up and delivered with help from the local Amazon depot which also donated a huge pile of gifts.

Cabinet member for children’s services, Cllr Philip Read said: “This is a great campaign and it is always a delight to welcome our police partners in with their sacks full of presents at this time of year!”

Pc Green said: “It is humbling to see the generosity from the residents and businesses around the borough coming together for this cause and an honour to be a part of it.”

The presents are being distributed by staff in the children’s social care team.
