The Salvation Army delivered presents to children in time for Christmas morning.

More than 350 presents were donated to children by Bromley residents through the police’s Give a Gift Christmas tree appeal.

The appeal asked people to purchase and donate a new toy or gift for those children who may otherwise receive little or nothing.

All gifts were passed to the local Salvation Army’s Give a gift and light up a life at Christmas appeal.

Bromley Police’s Borough Commander, Chief Supt Chris Hafford, said: “It’s fantastic that we have been able to support the Salvation Army’s ‘Give a gift and light up a life at Christmas’ appeal to this extent.

“I’ve been absolutely delighted by the response from the people and businesses of Bromley, along with the officers and staff at the police station, to this worthwhile cause.”

The Christmas tree was sponsored by JH Property Services, Guildmore and F A Albin and Sons.
