National Elf Service

It's snowjoke... brace your-elf Christmas is coming!  

This December, get together and dress up in something elfy to help keep our patients healthy! By giving a donation to dress up for the day, you will be making a huge difference to our young patients and their families for years to come.

Release your inner elf to help to build a better future for the 200 children a day who visit our Emergency Department, the 90 patients a year who are treated on our Cancer and Leukaemia Ward as well as the major trauma patients who arrive via helicopter when every second counts. 

Our elves have made lots of festive fundraising materials to get you started with your fundraising. Contact us on the form below and we will send you a fundraising pack with everything you need to increase your fun and fundraising!

Thank you from all the elves at Sheffield Children’s Hospital!


  • A few elf-fund busters to get you thinking!

    Get Elf-fy: It’s easy, dress up as an elf this December for a donation.

    Christmas cards: Instead of sending cards use our poster (coming soon our elves are still making it) in your workplace - then donate what you would have spent on Christmas cards to us!

    Guess how many jingle bells in the jar: Pop up your fundraising poster (coming soon our elves are still making it) for a suggested £2 donation.

    Elf movie night: Get your friends round for a movie night and watch your favourite Christmas film. Donate the money you would have spent on going to the cinema. Sell popcorn and refreshments on the night

    Present wrapping contest: Test out your elf skills and hold a present wrapping contest. Marks could be awarded for speed and creativity.
