From the 19th of November 2014, take a gift tag from the Christmas tree outside New Scotland Yard or on your local borough. This will give instructions on how you can provide a present for a child who may not otherwise receive on this Christmas.
Last year on 14 November 2013 The Metropolitan Police Commissioner Bernard Hogan-Howe launched the Christmas Tree Appeal. This was run on five London boroughs. More than 1000 children in care in the boroughs of Westminster, Camden, Southwark, Lambeth and Hammersmith and Fulham received presents from the appeal.
Following on from this success, this year the Christmas Tree Appeal, will role out to each of the 32 boroughs to aim to provide Christmas presents to children in care.
How it works:
Lambeth have 513 children/young people who are either in residential homes or foster care.
To support the Lambeth Christmas Project and contribute a voucher/present email: LXMailbox-.ChristmasTreeProject@met.pnn.police.uk
You will then be allocated a unique reference with details of gender and age for a child/young person to buy a voucher or present for. Age range between 0 -17. Maximum spend of £20.
