Southwark Police Cadets 2017 Christmas Tree Appeal hosted at The MCT at Alleyn's

Partner: Southwark Police
Partner type: Community Group
Project category: Volunteering

Alleyn's welcomed back the Southwark Police Cadets who were here to host the annual Christmas Tree Appeal, ensuring all children in foster care in Southwark receive a present at Christmas time.

Children came along with their carers to have an evening of Christmas fun hosted by the Southwark Police Cadets. Activities included face painting, games, and a Christmas carol sing-a-long. Father Christmas arrived on his sleigh at the end of the evening with presents for all and to wish everyone a Merry Christmas!

Background and goals

The MET Christmas Tree appeal has been running since 2012. Last year the appeal raised over £20,000 and over 17,000 presents were given to children in need across the city.

Resources
