Transport for London’s (TfL’s) Lost Property Office has kick-started the festive period this December by donating hundreds of toys and games for children as part of The Salvation Army’s Christmas Present Appeal.
The Lost Property Office has given joy to disadvantaged children for the last 11 years by providing presents for them during the Christmas season. The donation includes children’s toys and games that have been lost on the network and have remained unclaimed for over three months.
The Salvation Army will work with care services in south London, such as Lewisham Council, so children can have something to unwrap and enjoy this Christmas when they might not otherwise receive any presents.
With all of the joy and excitement that comes during this festive period, customers are reminded to take extra care of their belongings when using London’s transport network and are encouraged to report any suspicious items or behaviour to a member of staff or a police officer.
