Wembley Police Station is taking part in the Met’s Christmas charity programme and invite people to drop by with donations.

The Xmas Tree Project has launched with a pledge to deliver all donated gifts to children before Christmas Day on December 25.

People can support the campaign and give a gift by taking a tagged ribbon from the tree outside the station in Harrow Road and following the instructions.

The Met is supporting the child poverty charity Childhood Trust, where people can also make online donations.

Gifts will be given to children aged from one week to 18 years who are currently being cared for by foster parents, live in residential care homes, in refuges, in hospitals or are children from low-income families.

The suggested spend for gifts is less than £20.

@MPSBrent tweeted: "Help bring joy to a child this Xmas. We also need rolls of Xmas wrapping paper. You can drop wrapping paper at Wembley Police Station. Thank you."
