FIREFIGHTERS wore their festive hats with pride all in the name of charity.
Bognor Regis fire station’s Green Watch donned their woolly head warmers to encourage others to back the NSPCC’s first ever Bobble Hat Day on December 10.
A West Sussex Fire & Rescue Service spokeswoman said: “Safeguarding and supporting young people is something we are passionate about in the fire and rescue service so we’re really pleased to support this NSPCC campaign.
“This is a fun and simple way to support ChildLine this Christmas. Just wear your favourite bobble hat on December 10, post a picture of yourself in your hat on Facebook or Twitter along with #BOBBLEHATDAY and then text BOBBLE to 70744 to make a £2 donation.”
ChildLine will be open throughout Christmas so children have someone to talk to.
NSPCC fundraising manager Tracey Bravo said: “For most children, Christmas is a happy time. But for others it can be lonely and upsetting.
“By taking part in Bobble Hat Day and making a donation to the NSPCC, you could be helping us to be there for every child who needs us this Christmas and beyond.”
