Children at a string of hospitals were given Easter eggs by police officers last weekend.
Met officers delivered more than 1,400 Easter eggs to children at St Thomas’, St George’s, St Mary’s and King’s College Hospitals, as well as Great Ormond Street, to help brighten up the children’s Easter weekend.
Officers and staff from the Met’s Violent Crime Taskforce donated the Easter eggs and then, alongside officers from Operation Venice, delivered the eggs whilst out on patrol.
Sergeant Dan Nelson, who organised Operation Easter Smile, said: “Many children in hospitals across London were sadly unable to spend time with their loved ones over the Easter weekend.
“I hope this brought a smile to those children’s faces, and the hard-working NHS staff who are caring for them.
“I would like to thank each and every one of my colleagues who were involved.”
