Lincolnshire police held a whip-round to give a boy back his birthday and Christmas money, which was stolen by burglars.
The eight-year-old boy lost around £80 in the burglary last month before officers decided to step in and help.
PCs James Knychala and Christopher Windsor-Beck, as well as PS Dan McCormack, all visited the boy in Fulbeck to give the money back.
He smiled non-stop during their visit and especially enjoyed putting on the police car lights.
When the police media team asked if they could share the good deed, the officers asked: “do you have to?”
The family were delighted and wanted to share the story but preferred to keep their names and street private.
