A Call For Elves

A Call For Elves

The Budding Foundation Charity are looking for volunteer elves to help run their already popular charity Christmas grotto in Hassocks and, new for this year, at Dial Post.

There’s the chance to join the friendly family of elves working at South Downs Heritage Centre in Hassocks and Old Barn Garden Centre in Dial Post, and help make a difference to the lives of local children, who are supported by this Sussex charity.

The Budding Foundation raised £23,000 last year and all of this has been spent supporting children and young people in need across the county, as well as through various projects in  local schools. This year, they hope to raise an incredible £40,000-plus for the charity.

If you have a few hours or a few days to spare in December, please contact clive@thebuddingfoundation.co.uk to register your interest. It took a team of 40 elves to run the grotto in Hassocks last year, with some volunteering for just one or two afternoons and others for whole weekends.

“With the introduction of a new grotto at Old Barn Garden Centre, some of our South Downs elves will be moving to Old Barn, so we are looking for volunteers for both centres”, explains Clive. “This is an incredibly rewarding role. You will become part of our elf family, which includes a VIP invitation to the post-christmas elf reunion party, organised by Santa himself.”
