Elf Run aims to be a magical success for local hospice

Thousands of children across Hull and East Yorkshire shall be donning their elf hats and boots to help support local charity Dove House Hospice this December by taking part in their Elf Run fundraiser.

The Elf Run is simply a sponsored walk, run or tip-toe (or perhaps a combination of all three) and will be promoted to nursery schools and primary schools across the region.

Dan Clipson, Senior Fundraiser at Dove House, commented on the appeal: “Our Elf Run is a great way for children to be engaged with the hospice and learn more about who we are and how we help in the community. Schools enjoy the flexibility of setting the date, distance and location of their Elf Run and it is hoped that, collectively, schools across the region help to raise £45,000 towards our patient care.

“Many schools are also taking up the opportunity of an assembly so that their children know and understand the cause that they are very kindly raising money and awareness for.”

There is no minimum sponsorship requirement. Each and every pound raised will help to ensure that Dove House Hospice can continue to provide its specialised care for patients at Christmastime.
