More than 1,000 presents are on their way to children in foster care in Hounslow , after officers from the borough's police force delivered two vans full of gifts to social services.
It is all part of the Metropolitan Police 's Christmas Tree Campaign which was set up to ensure that as many children as possible in London receive a present to open on Christmas Day.
The appeal has been running for three years and each year, every force across London asks members of the public for donations.
In 2015, more than 11,000 presents and more than £9,000 was donated by members of the public through the Met Police and although figures have yet to be collected for this year's campaign, an official from the Met Police said: "Early indications show that it's the best year yet."
Hounslow Police has been involved in the campaign for the past two years.
Sergeant Nathan Fane, of Hounslow Police, said: "It's a basic principal, just letting those children know, many of which are very vulnerable, that somebody, somewhere is thinking about them on Christmas Day."
Hounslow Police identified 256 children between the ages of four and 17 in care, and with more than 1,000 gifts donated, each child will receive at least three presents.
It is a generosity that Sergeant Fane and his colleagues are impressed by, he said: "The response from the public and from local businesses who have contributed massively around Hounslow and Feltham has been absolutely fantastic."
The force delivered the presents to social services, but with so many to give out, they required some assistance.
On hand to transport the presents from the police van turned Santa's sleigh, was Santa's little helper, three-year-old PC Cute Constable Maule or Peter, as he is also known.
Peter's mum, Danielle Maule told getwestlondon she is hugely proud of her son.
She said "I almost cried when we got the phone call saying that he would be coming down here, for him, he's so excited about it, he's loving it."
Social services will now take the presents and deliver them to the foster children across the borough.
For the younger ones, there is even a Christmas party, with Father Christmas ready and waiting with all of the gifts.
"It means a lot to them because it's something that they get from us in a way," said Chloe Sullivan, from Hounslow Council.
"They will get presents from their foster carers and they will get other presents but potentially not from their families."
She added: "We are really grateful for them [the local community] being so generous and getting all of them presents."
Alongside the appeal for donations for children, Hounslow Police also collected cash donations to help elderly residents in the borough, who find themselves alone on Christmas Day.
The force are supporting two charities, Age UK and a local charity which runs out of Hounslow Youth Club.
