Brent Police have launched a Christmas tree gift appeal for children living in care in the borough.

Members of the public are being urged to give a gift by collecting a tagged ribbon from the special Christmas tree inside Wembley Police Station front office.

The tag will provided details of a gift to buy for a children in care (maximum cost £20).

This year’s appeal builds on the success of the Met’s Christmas wish list tree from last year, which saw more than 1,000 children benefit from the goodwill of Londoners.

Chief Supt Michael Gallagher, Brent Police borough commander, said: “We would welcome the generosity of the public in supporting our Christmas Tree appeal.

“It is a worthy campaign, spreading a little Christmas cheer to those that may need a little more love than most especially during the festive season.”

The gifts will be for children aged from one week to 17 years and will be delivered to them at their care homes before Christmas Day.
