Lollies by the bucket loads were thrown out the windows of emergency services vehicles this morning for the fifth annual Logan Emergency Services Santa Run.
With the storms hitting the City of Logan hard on Christmas Eve, the crews ran just a little behind when leaving after being out helping the community get things back in order.
After leaving the Woodridge Fire Station, the first stop was at ADRA in Woodridge where there were many children and families waiting to see the convoy, Santa and all the helpers.
Following on from there, the crews travelled the streets of Logan Central, Marsden, Waterford West and finishing the run at the Logan Children’s Hospital in Meadowbrook.
“That is another year done and dusted for the 2023 Logan Emergency Services Santa Run,” said organiser Louie Naumovski.
“Another great morning considering the weather reports were bleak, yet it ended up being a hot humid day that we managed to get through.
“Fantastic morning with thanks going out to Santa for coming out on the fire truck, Steve Salisbury, Station Officer at Woodridge Fire Station, the boys and girls in blue (QPS), QAS, SES and emergency service cadets, to all our sponsors and doners who continue to support us and to Bruce Billing Photography who does all the fantastic photos.”
Tagging along on the run and helping to hand out lollies and presents was Division 3 Councillor Mindy Russell.
“My Christmas morning tradition is joining Santa and our emergency service heroes travelling through Logan and giving out lollies, it’s the best,” said Cr Mindy Russell.
“It was heart-warming as usual and thank you for keeping it going, Louie.”
