Merseyside Police have delivered presents across the Merseyside

MERSEYSIDE Police became Santa's helpers for the day, on Friday, 15 December 2017, when they deliver presents donated from their:- 'Christmas Tree Project' to children across Merseyside.  The project saw members of the public, Officers and staff donate suitable gifts at various Police Stations, which have now been collected and will be delivered to children between the ages of 2 and 17, in care homes, across Merseyside. Each person donating was allocated a child to buy for, to make sure each 1 gets the perfect present. The response from the public and staff has been truly heart warming and Chief Constable Andy Cooke was joined by his Chief Officers, at Police Headquarters this morning to gather the gifts together before they are given to children across Merseyside to make their Christmas special.

The Chief Constable said:- "I would like to thank all of the companies, members of our communities and our staff who have given their time to this amazing project. It is humbling to see the generosity of people across Merseyside. This really is what Christmas is all about, with every gift making this time of year better for those children in our communities who might otherwise go without. We are happy to do our bit in ensuring the children that we reach wake up on Christmas Day with a present, as every child should experience the magic of Christmas."

Merseyside's Police Commissioner Jane Kennedy said:- "This is such a simple idea, but 1 that will make the world of difference to a child who may otherwise have been waking up on Christmas morning with nothing waiting for them under the tree. Even a small gesture can make a huge difference at Christmas and, thanks to the generosity and thoughtfulness of the Officers and staff of Merseyside Police and all those who offered to buy gifts, these children will instead be experiencing some festive cheer this year. I would like to thank everyone involved with this fantastic project and all those who gave so kindly; this is what Christmas is all about."
