Calling all schools, groups and nurseries! Here at St Cuthbert’s Hospice it’s never too early to think about Christmas and we wanted to share with you a festive fundraising idea that we would really love for you to be part of!

This year, we are very excited to be launching our very first Elf Run! Simply pick a day in December that suits you best, and get sponsored to walk, run or skip around your chosen route! You could take part in a PE lesson, host an elf walk around your area or even complete your own elf obstacle course in the playground! It’s totally up to you on how you do it, we’re super flexible and happy for you to do it your way.

It’s a fun way to help raise money for the Hospice and get everyone in the festive mood!

As a special thank you, if you decide to hold an Elf Run, you will receive:

  • Fun Elf Hats with Ears for everyone to wear who takes part!
  • Posters/flyers to advertise your Elf Run 
  • Sponsorship forms and fundraising game
  • An ‘about us leaflet’ to let you know what we do 
  • With prior arrangement, a Hospice representative to attend your event
  • A thank you certificate for everyone that takes part

Kindly Sponsored by Motorpoint Birtley

If you would like to get involved in our Elf Run then we would really love to hear from you! You can call us on 0191 386 1170 option 5 or send us an email at

Langley Moor Primary School Sign Up for Elf Run

Pupils from Langley Moor Primary School are already super excited to be getting into the Christmas spirit for us! They’ve signed up to take part in our Elf Run, a sponsored run (or walk, skip or toddle!) this December 🤩

Each pupil who attends will get one of these awesome elf hats, a certificate to say thank you and a sponsorship form to try and raise a few extra pennies for the Hospice.
We popped along to the school to deliver all of the resources they’ll need to host their Elf Run and, as you can see, the pupils loved dressing up as a practice before the big day!

If your school would like to take part in your very own Elf Run contact The Community and Events Team on 0191 386 1170 option 5 or email
