Portsmouth Lifeboat launched to rescue Santa and bring him back to Lifeboat station at Portsmouth to meet the friends, families and children of the Portsmouth Lifeboat Crew.
Throughout the year the crew are prepared to drop everything and run for the boat.
This was their chance to give something back to those they leave behind. Santa then spent the next hour talking to the children and handing out presents before making his journey around the rest of the world.
