Some kids went Christmas shopping at the Mayflower Mall yesterday with the help of Cape Breton Regional Police officers.
The 48 elementary students from various schools were paired with officers to help them spend $300 each on gifts. The money came from the Mayflower Mall and local businessmen Joe Anthony of A&L Seafoods, Jim Kennedy of Louisbourg Seafood Limited and John Wilcox of Argen Fisheries. Sportcheck also provided each student with a new winter jacket.
The police were happy to see the kids spending their money on gifts for other people and not themselves.
