Nottinghamshire Police would like to thank Greggs and Nottingham City Council after they received a large donation of doughnuts to hand out to the local community.
The force’s Citizens in Policing Department shared some of the delicious treats across the Bulwell area last week with Director Keiren Thompson from Helping Kids Achieve youth group.
The force and youth group continue to work together to support and engage with young people and the community during lockdown.
Mr Thompson, who is currently the BBC Sports Personality of the Year Unsung Hero Award winner after his brilliant youth work, said: “We are very thankful for the donation and it’s great that we can deliver treats to local kids and families in the area during these difficult times.”
Outreach worker Romel Davis added: “It is so important that we continue to keep in contact with our young people and communities, support them and remain visible during this pandemic.
“We just have to be creative and do things differently as we move through this crisis.”
The force also delivered doughnuts to the Lyrico Steede Cadet base in the area, which is in a community centre, as well as treats going to other organisations.
Some doughnuts were delivered to founder of Truth Mental Health Michaela Spencer (AKA Michaela Plentiful-Poet) who distributed them to vulnerable and elderly people and some children in the Broxtowe Area.
Items were also been given to Carer Louise Kelsey Simpson from Direct Health Group Careers to take to the residential home she works in.
All social distancing and government guidelines were followed.
