Families headed down to a children’s charity yesterday for an annual fun day all about the emergency services.

Police officers and fire crews brought along their vehicles to First Step to offer youngsters the opportunity to climb in them and learn more about the staff’s work.

Craft activities and stalls also featured in the day, in Tangmere Crescent, Hornchurch, which raised more than £470.

Fundraising manager Michelle Mitchell said: “We are so grateful to everyone involved with the emergency services fun day.

“It was fantastic to have both the police and fire service crews and vehicles here at First Step and the children had a wonderful time.

“The funds raised will help to continue the work of First Step, supporting families of babies and pre-school children with special needs and/or disabilities in Havering.”
