A YOUNG police cadet is giving up his spare time to spread Christmas cheer among the community.

Christopher Burling, a member of the Essex Police Cadets, is taking part in the Harlow Police Giving Tree initiative to collect presents for young people in the town who may otherwise go without.

The Year 9 student from Burnt Mill Academy gave a series of presentations to the whole school and staff, appealing for gifts to donate to vulnerable children.

He will now spend three days in the lead-up to Christmas wrapping the presents and delivering them in his role as a cadet.

Ciara Brosnan, head of Year 9, said: “I’m really proud and impressed with how Christopher and the police cadets are working hard to provide every child with some Christmas cheer this year. 

“Christopher has gone above and beyond with this initiative, asking for donations and getting his fellow students on board with providing gifts. It is wonderful to hear that someone on their holidays is taking the time out of his day to help others. 

“Christopher’s aim is to make sure every child at Christmas wakes up to a present. He wants everyone to have a smile on their faces on Christmas morning, especially after such a turbulent year.

“This is a fantastic project. I’m very proud of Christopher and all the hard work he has done for this and I’m delighted that Burnt Mill Academy can be involved in bringing some much-needed Christmas cheer to the community.”
