Join the National Elf Service this Christmas

Join us on Thursday 17 December to celebrate National Elf Service Day. Simply dress up as an elf or your favourite Christmassy character for the day and spread the sparkle in your school, nursery, work or at home.

Invite your friends, colleagues or family and encourage them to donate £2 or more to your local NHS hospital charity, Above & Beyond.

If you can’t make that date, then choose another day in December that suits you and your fellow elves. This is an opportunity to say a massive thank you to our wonderful NHS staff, who’ll be there for us 24/7 this Christmas.

Can’t collect cash? No problem

We know that lots of companies, nurseries and schools aren't handling cash at the moment but that doesn't mean a dent to your fundraising total!

Create a JustGiving Christmas Fundraising page so that you can easily send it to anyone who wants to contribute to your fundraising.

Christmas Elf Name Generator

Use our Elf Name Generator below to find out your elf name! Simply choose the first letter of your first name and match it with your birth month.

Remember to take lots of 'elfies' on the day and share your elf name with us on social media by using the hashtags #NESBristol and #NationalElfService.

You can also download the Elf Name Generator poster and pin it up at school, at home or in your workplace.

Christmas Colouring Activities for Nurseries, Schools and Families

As part of National Elf Service we've come up with some festive themed colouring templates for you to do at nursery or school, or with kids at home. We have our festive NHS Heroes and four Christmas tree decoration sheets. Click on the images below to download the PDF templates.


Christmas Zoom Backgrounds

We've all had to get used to using Zoom over the last few months, whether for working at home or to keep in touch with friends and family.

Why not add some festive fun to your video calls over the new few weeks by downloading our Christmas Zoom backgrounds? Perfect for that 'all staff' meeting and your National Elf Service Day fundraising!

Click on the image below to download all four Zoom backgrounds.  Upload your chosen picture to the 'virtual background' next time you use Zoom.
