The Metropolitan Police Service has again partnered with the Childhood Trust to raise money to provide toys and gifts for children living in poverty in London. Last year we were able to raise over £87,000 through small and large contributions from the public, and are looking to match that this year, with your help!
Many thanks to those who have already supported this Met Christmas tree appeal already, and for those who would like to get involved please find attached a note that goes to highlight how contributions can be made.
The document also explains about the charity we are working with.
This year the MPS has struggled to gain significant corporate sponsorship and we are getting close to the point where some difficult decisions may have to be made, if we don’t raise enough in donations. we really want every child to wake up on Christmas morning in London with a present, as no child should have to wake up feeling uncared for due to poverty or vulnerability on this day.
Any donations given are very much appreciated. Merry Christmas, and happy holidays!
