Christmas Tree Project 2016

Violet The winning poster

Welcome to The Metropolitan Police Commissioner's Christmas Tree Project 2016

In 2015 we had over 11,000 presents and over £9,000 kindly donated by the public helping to provide presents to children who may otherwise not have received one last Christmas. This year with your help we want to see if we can do even better.

Thank you!

We have now stopped asking for presents and donations for this year's campaign. This is to give us time to process everything so we can deliver gifts to all the children before Christmas.

Do keep an eye on the site where we will announce how many presents we receive in due course. The support this year has been fantastic, so we are hopeful that it will be our best year yet.

Thank you so much to everyone who has taken part.
