Raising money for the Fire Fighters Charity and Forest Holme, Santa will be supported by firefighters from both Poole and Hamworthy fire stations, volunteers and the two fire service mascots, Deetector and Welliphant.
Poole’s On-call Watch Manager Ian Crabb, said: “Previous year’s events were a great success and we’re all really looking forward to escorting Santa through our local neighbourhood again. It gives us a great opportunity to engage with our community, spread some festive cheer, raise some money and deliver our fire safety messages.”
