Lewis, six, does his bit for ser­vices at Christ­mas

Manchester Evening News - - NEWS -

A LIT­TLE boy who dreams of grow­ing up to be a po­lice of­fi­cer spent his Christ­mas Day morning hand­ing out treats to the emer­gency ser­vices with his lit­tle sis­ter.

For the past two years, Lewis An­der­son, six, has vis­ited po­lice and fire sta­tions and hos­pi­tals on Christ­mas Day to hand out cards and chocolates to emer­gency work­ers.

And this year the young­ster, who ac­cord­ing to dad Paul hopes to grow up to be­come an of­fi­cer, got his lit­tle sis­ter Ge­or­gia, three, to join in with his bril­liant new tra­di­tion.

Be­fore they sat down to Christ­mas din­ner, the children spent sev­eral hours vis­it­ing dif­fer­ent places around Manch­ester.

At Philips Park fire sta­tion, they were treated to a tour of the sta­tion’s new fire en­gine.

They also went on to Gor­ton po­lice sta­tion, where of­ficers let them sit in the pa­trol cars, be­fore head­ing over to Manch­ester Royal In­fir­mary, where they met paramedics be­fore hand­ing out treats in children’s A&E.

Dad Paul said: “Lewis has got a proper love for the po­lice, if ever he sees an of­fi­cer he al­ways has to cross the street to talk to them.

“I’m so proud of him. It’s all come from him.”
