Police officers in Leek helped spread the festive cheer ahead of the big day last week by donating items to help members of the community.

Officers from Staffordshire Moorlands Neighbourhood Policing Team (NPT), attended Haregate Community Centre in Queens Drive, Leek on Monday, December 20, to present them with donations including furniture, cooking appliances and tools.

The items have since been distributed to those in need in the community, or have been auctioned off to raise funds for the community centre which provides a number of friendship, support and wellbeing groups for residents to attend each week.

PCSO Simon Long, of Moorlands NPT, said: “Many people have faced financial hardship and uncertainty this year, and so this Christmas, we wanted to continue to do all we can to help those in need.

We hope this will bring smiles to people’s faces and remind them that they are cared for, whatever their situation.”

Laura Cottingham, manager at the Haregate Community Centre, said: “Many families we have heard from at the centre say they have really struggled financially and have been placed under even more pressure with the expense of this time of year.

We’re very grateful that local officers took time to visit us and donate the items which will make a huge difference.

A number of items have been put aside for use in the community essentials project helping families in need in time of crisis and other items have been auctioned off, not only to give people the chance to have some amazing gifts at an affordable price before Christmas, but also to raise much needed funds towards the centre allowing us to provide continued support to local residents.”
