Local firefighters will be chaperoning Father Christmas through the local community on Monday 19th December, delivering fire safety advice and collecting charitable donations for three charities as part of the annual Santa’s Fire Sleigh.
With Christmas just around the corner, the crew will begin their journey at 6pm, escorting Santa through the streets of the Waterloo estate until 7.15pm. They will then move to Clarendon Road, Broadstone, finishing there at around 8.30pm.
Raising money for the Fire Fighters Charity, Forest Holme and Julia’s House, Santa will be supported by firefighters from both Poole and Hamworthy fire stations, volunteers and the two fire service mascots, Deetector and Welliphant.
Poole White Watch Crew Manager, Richard Cole, said: “We’re all really looking forward to escorting Santa through our local neighbourhood. It gives us a great opportunity to engage with our community, spread some festive cheer, raise some money and deliver our fire safety messages.”
Poole Watch Manager, Ian Crabb added: “We would like to express our thanks to all the local businesses that have, and continue to support us. We’re all really looking forward to getting out in our community to deliver some festive cheer.”
