Please see below some of the most frequently asked questions we get.
A. We have limited resources to move presents around so it is easier if you select the area you wish to drop the present at.
A. No. This is a Metropolitan Police Project. If you wish to make a donation however, we would be very grateful.
A. For security reasons we ask they are not wrapped. We wrap the presents before they are gifted to the children, and we do welcome donations of wrapping paper so if you are able to provide some or a gift bag that would be most appreciated.
A. We do not want to put unnecessary pressure on the care homes to provide batteries when they run out.
A. Tuesday 12 December. This is to allow time for the presents to be wrapped and delivered before Christmas.
A. Please be assured your allocated child will be provided for. We receive monetary donations that we use to fill any gaps. We deliver gifts to children in hospitals and victims of crime right up until Christmas Eve so please do still hand your presents in.
A. We recommend no more than twenty pounds. This can be made up of one or a number of presents.
A. Gift cards are a very popular choice if you are unsure of what to buy.
A. Unfortunately the system allocates at random to ensure all children get a present. If you have strong views and wish to buy a present for a specific age child you can drop one in without a reference number. This will be used to fill in any gaps where people have not provided presents. We provide to various children in need, including refuges, disadvantaged families and hospitals and your gift will go to a good home.
A. Due to the number of children we're not able to gather that amount of information.
A. Presents go to children in care, disadvantaged families, refuges or hospitals all over London.
