FIREFIGHTERS spread festive joy to poorly and needy children in
Greater Manchester when they delivered presents on Christmas
Crews from Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service (GMFRS)
hand delivered gifts on December 25 that had been kindly donated by
members of the public and local businesses.
Youngsters on the children's ward at Wythenshawe Hospital
received a special visit from Red Watch firefighters from
Wythenshawe Fire Station along with GMFRS mascot Cracker the fire
dog who entertained the young ones.
Firefighters wrapped and handed out Christmas presents that had
been kindly donated by members of the local community.
Red and Green Watch crews from Gorton and Moss Side Fire
Stations visited the Royal Manchester Children's Hospital to hand
out Christmas presents and lift people's spirits.
Three fire engines arrived at the hospital on Christmas Day -
and later firefighters talked to poorly children and staff, posed
for photographs and gave out the presents.
Crews from Heywood collected gifts from people who donated to
the Key 103 Mission Christmas Appeal - many of whom left presents
at the station for children living in poverty.
White Watch crews then delivered the gifts to staff from Hamleys
toy store so they could be distributed to needy children in Greater
Manchester in time for Christmas Day.
