Waitrose Parkstone Carnival Advert Wessex 4x4 Response Logo

Wessex 4x4 Response is a charity made up of volunteers that can offer a variety of services to Local Authorities, Emergency Services and other Volunteer Agencies.

Principally this is providing reliable transport in times of major emergencies and severe weather (snow & ice, gales, heavy rain and floods).

This can be to transport essential personnel or supplies to areas that would be hard or impossible to reach in normal vehicles, and also in support of emergency rest centres set up by local authorities.

We can also provide assistance when an emergency response organisation's own vehicle assets have been depleted by the demands made on them.


Poole Carnival is proud to be supporting the Lilypad Appeal and Gully's Place charities this year.
