The fourth annual Logan Emergency Services Santa Run was held on Christmas morning where it once again left from the Woodridge Fire Station on Kingston Road.

Logan House Fire Support Network’s Louie Naumovski and Senior Fire Fighter Scott Edwards were again leading the group of volunteers and emergency service personnel for the day.

After leaving the fire station, the convoy of vehicles travelled through streets of Woodridge passing out lollies along the way before stopping at the first major stop, ADRA Community Centre on Station Road.

Santa was riding along in one of the fire trucks and was there to greet all the children waiting for him at ADRA.

Many presents and lollies were handed out before the convoy continued through the Logan streets on their way to the Logan Children’s Hospital.

The presents were delivered by Santa to the children in the children’s unit of Logan Hospital where smiles were brought to the faces of many.

“Thank you to everybody who contributed assisting us with this event,” said Mr Naumovski.

“It was a success again bringing so much joy to the children of Logan; handing out the lollies and handing out presents was just fantastic to see.

“After five hours of travelling the streets and ending at our final destination of the Logan Children’s Hospital, we are done for 2022 and we all hope everyone enjoyed it.

“From myself and my little mate Marcie (his dog), we want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas, stay safe, hydrated, and we look forward to seeing everybody soon, under good circumstances, not tragedies,” finished Mr Naumovski.
