The three eldest children of Rabbi Daniel Sturgess, the synagogue’s minister, brought the treats to St Albans fire station and Hatfield police station, with illustrated notes expressing their thanks.

Rabbi Sturgess said: “Many of us have enjoyed time away from our usual routines during the holidays, and many of us will have taken the opportunity to spend time with friends and family.

“However, while we do so, we know there are others in our society who have needed to continue working for our benefit, and we wanted to show in this small way how much we value the sacrifice they make for us.

“I am happy to say the emergency services staff who received the gifts were touched by the sentiment – and excited by the cupcakes!”
