The Middlesbrough Police Cadets are attending a Christmas Dinner event organised for elderly residents in the Longlands and Beechwood wards.
The cadets have attended the event previously with officers from Cleveland Police neighbourhood police teams. They serve meals and talk to the residents.
This activity is highly valued and is still mentioned by the residents. It works to combat loneliness and builds bridges between police and residents
The Cadets have requested a small donation from the Police Property Act Fund so to buy small gifts for the residents. They want to make sure everyone has a present to open on Christmas Day.
The gifts include novelty Christmas items, mugs and chocolates. The Cadets will also buy cellophane paper, bows and ribbons to wrap the gifts. All receipts will be forwarded to the PCC.
This initiative supports the PCCs objective of Securing the Future of our Communities.
