Father Christmas visited the homes of Uckfield children in a gleaming fire engine, courtesy of the town’s firefighters on Christmas Eve .
The station set up a door-to-door service to deliver presents to excited children on Christmas Eve and the man in red surprised a loved one with a hand-delivered present. All you had to do for this personal service is to arrange for the present to be dropped off at the Uckfield Fire station, clearly labelled with the child’s name and address, along with a small donation. All money raised will be donated to the Fire Fighters Charity.
Residents were able to drop off presents up until December 21st between 9.00am to 5.00pm.
Then on Christmas Eve Father Christmas delivered these presents to the recipients requested in a fire engine.
The service was only open to the community of Uckfield.
