Donate a Christmas gift for local children in need

Get Living London is proud to be supporting the Christmas Tree Project for the second year running.

The project is an appeal by the Metropolitcan Police which aims to ensure that thousands of children in care across the capital receive a Christmas present this year.

The Met Police have teamed up with Newham Council to identify those children most in need and all areas of the East Village community have come together to support it.

To donate to the appeal is simple:

– Buy a present suitable for a girl/boy between the ages of 0-12, with a suggested value of between £5 and £20.

– Drop your unwrapped present off to the Get Living London Welcome Office (5 Celebration Avenue). It’s open Monday to Friday 8am-8pm, and 9am-6pm on Saturday and Sunday.

– The deadline is Sunday 11 December.

Following the deadline the East Village Police team will collect the presents and take them away to be wrapped and distributed by both the Police and Newham Council to local children in need, making sure everyone has a very Merry Christmas!
