With a hard year for all, Christmas is shaping up to be a positive one with the return of the Logan Emergency Services Santa Run.
Logan Fire fighters, Logan Police, Logan Ambulance, Logan SES, and Rural Fire Brigades will be hitting the roads around Woodridge, Logan Central, Marsden and Loganlea giving out lollies and presents.
For the past few months, the team has been working tirelessly collecting toys, lollies, and other gifts to be given to the children along the Santa Run and most importantly to sick children who will spend Christmas in Logan Hospital.
“Just like before we will be departing Woodridge Fire Station on Christmas Day and travelling the streets handing out lollies and donating the presents kindly donated to those children in need and at the Children’s Hospital,” said Mr Naumovski.
This trip ends at the Logan Hospital Children’s Ward where the group will hand out gifts to sick children to bring joy to them this time of year.
Prior to the Santa Run, a Donation Day will be held at Kensington Tavern in Crestmead where locals are encouraged to bring down unwrapped gifts, individually wrapped lollies, colouring in books and coloured pens and pencils.
A fire truck is set to be outside and inside a Christmas tree where all the donations can be dropped of between 3:30pm and 4:30pm on Friday December 22.
The Logan Emergency Services Santa Run is set to leave Woodridge Fire Station at 8am on Christmas Day, December 25, with a stop at ADRA in Woodridge, before heading to their final stop at the Logan Children’s Hospital.
