Ferndown firefighters support local charity

Date: 4th December, 2019

Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service is providing a donation point for people who want to support an East Dorset-based charity in the run-up to Christmas.

Over the coming week, Ferndown fire station is accepting items suitable for inclusion in Christmas hampers being made up by the Bus Stop Club, a charity based in the Turbary Resource Centre.

Firefighters will be at the Centre – in Corbin Avenue, on the Heatherlands Estate – on 10 December to work with other volunteers in packing the hampers, which will then be distributed to families in need as part of the Big Give Christmas Challenge.

Watch Manager Dave Waters, from Ferndown fire station, said: “The station is open every week day, and we’ve got a car park, so it’s an easy place for people to call in and drop off toys, crackers and little gifts. The Bus Stop Club does an amazing job every Christmas in helping people disadvantaged by poverty, ill health and social isolation, and we’re delighted to be playing a small part in their work.”

The Bus Stop Club is also raising funds to pay for Christmas meals for their clients and anyone else referred to them by known agencies. After the festive period, they will continue offering individual support, life skills, trauma recovery, a community café and school holiday activities.
