Our second visit to Kingston Police Station this week to help organise presents donated for their Christmas Tree appeal.

Santa's grotto was well stocked with mountains of presents and the 3 GoodGym elves were quickly put to work sorting them into bags and labeling them for each of the local social workers.

We had a long list, we were checking it twice, trying to find out who wanted toy mice!

When a present hadn't been donated for a specific child we helped Santa Sharron choose a suitable present for them, which resulted in a lot of discussion about what teenage boys like nowadays!!

Laura made friends with a monkey called Marvin but was ultimately happy to send him to a new home with a local child for Christmas.

Present piles growing and floor space shrinking we loaded our sleigh and made 3 delivery runs to Guildhall to hand the presents to the local social worker teams.
