More than 350 gifts will be delivered to cared for children in Brent thanks to a project launched by the police.

The Met’s Christmas Tree Project has been an annual event since 2012, with trees being lit up by officers outside police stations and in other public places to ensure more children in need have a present delivered to them in time for Christmas Day.

Commissioner Cressida Dick said: “At this time of giving and festivities, we have the opportunity to spread a little joy to those children less fortunate and in care.

“My deepest thanks go to all those who donated.”

Cllr Muhammed Butt, leader of Brent Council, said: “We’re delighted to take part in this fantastic appeal again this year. A wonderful idea by the Met Police, this appeal helps children in care have an extra special Christmas this festive season. We’re thrilled to help the Met Police deliver these gifts and help brighten a child’s Christmas.”
