Santa helped deliver more than 500 toys donated by Bromley police officers to sick children today (Friday).

The annual appeal for extra Christmas gifts is organised by Pc Jane Pearman, whose own daughter Sophie, 10, spent six months in the Lion Ward at Kings College Hospital, in Denmark Hill.

Accompanied by two police dogs, officers visited the hospital carrying gifts such as games consoles, teddy bears and Olympics memorabilia.

A plethora of books and DVDs were also given to the children’s library at the hospital, as well as Christmas hampers for parents visiting on Christmas Day.

Pc Pearman said: “I would like to thank my colleagues, both here at Bromley and across the MPS, and local Bromley businesses for their generosity again this year in supporting this great appeal.

“This cause is particularly close to my heart having spent Christmas in Lion ward with Sophie and I am pleased that this year we were again able to bring a little happiness to the children.”
