In 2018 we had over 19,000 presents 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.
about this section
Please support the campaign and give a gift by taking a tagged ribbon from the tree outside your local police station on your borough or at New Scotland Yard and following the instructions on the tag. Donations can also be made online to our chosen charity.
The suggested spend for gifts this year is no more than £20.
This year’s charity is The Childhood Trust, London’s child poverty charity. Their work supports children from across London and engages the most disadvantaged children to provide practical and emotional support.
Gifts will be given to children aged from one-week to 18-years-old and benefits those in need across all London boroughs. The children are currently being cared for by foster parents, in residential care homes, in refuges, in hospitals, or are children from low-income families.
All gifts will be delivered to the children before Christmas Day.
