Police officers in Coventry collecting toys for children in care

Officers across the local area have helped to organise and facilitate a toy drive for children in need over Christmas. 

Before being handed out to children in care in Coventry, all the gifts are being wrapped as part of a Christmas campaign to help people in the city. 

One of the organisers, Inspector Rebecca Farr, said: “The generosity from people has been amazing. We’ve had everything from games consoles to cuddly toys.

“We wanted to play a small part in making Christmas special for children in our city, and I’m really grateful to everyone who’s donated.”

There have also been several collections for Coventry’s food networks to create festive food hampers.

Coventry Police also gave out a special mention to the young people from the Prince’s Trust Project, who have collected food and toys for Hope Community Projects food hub in Gosford Green. 

At Coventry Central police station, the tuck shop managed to collect and donate almost 50 chocolate boxes, which are being sent to the Mosaic food hub in Hillfields.
