Palace for Life support Met Police Christmas Tree Project

Palace for Life Foundation are proud to support the Met Police Christmas Tree Project. Palace for Life have donated a Christmas tree which stands outside Croydon Police Station.

A Christmas tree decked in Palace red and blue is sitting proudly outside Croydon Police Station as the focal point for the Christmas Tree Project, a Met Police campaign that is encouraging people to donate presents to children living in poverty in London.

Last year over 19,000 presents were donated, helping to provide presents to children who may otherwise not have received one last Christmas. This year, the aim is to collect and donate even more gifts and help make Christmas special for more children.

Palace for Life Foundation has donated the Palace-themed tree which is by the front entrance to Croydon Police Station at 71 Park Lane, CR9 1BP. You can support the campaign and give a gift by taking a tagged ribbon from the tree or by asking station office staff for information. Then follow the instructions on the tag.

Donations can also be made online to the chosen charity, The Childhood Trust, London’s child poverty charity. Their work supports children from across London and engages the most disadvantaged children to provide practical and emotional support.

The suggested spend for gifts this year is no more than £20.

Gifts will be given to children aged from one-week to 18-years-old and benefits those in need across all London boroughs. The children are currently being cared for by foster parents, in residential care homes, in refuges, in hospitals, or are children from low-income families.

All gifts will be delivered to the children before Christmas Day.
