Officers help serve Christmas dinner at community centre
Main article content
Two police officers made the most of working on Christmas Day by helping to serve dinner at a local community centre.
The officers, from the Sutton-in-Ashfield neighbourhood team, volunteered to help out at the All Saints Community Centre in Huthwaite as meals were prepared for those who are, homeless, alone, or experiencing financial hardship.
Officers chipped in to help the centre’s dedicated team of volunteers prepare and serve food, before joining in with a range of festive activities.
PC Frew-McGill explained:
“We had a great day at the centre and were really taken aback by the care and dedication shown by the volunteers, who were each giving up their Christmas day to help others. The atmosphere was incredible and we were really thankful to be a part of it.
“It was also a really good way for us to reach out to all parts of the community and build stronger connections with people we may otherwise not come into contact with. Ultimately that is what neighbourhood policing is all about so it was definitely time well-spent.
“I’d like to thank the team at All Saints for having us and wish them all the very best for the New Year.”
