Tring Santa float seeks volunteer elves

It’s a busy time of year for Santa who is hoping to find a team of ‘little helpers’ to accompany his festive float during its traditional tour of Tring and surrounding villages in the nights before Christmas.

 Santa Float

Volunteers are needed to join the teams of elves who help Father Christmas as he travels around on his brightly-lit float, collecting for Rennie Grove Hospice Care. No previous “elving” experience is necessary for the role.

Jack Short who is a regular Rennie Grove volunteer elf said, “Being part of the Santa float team is good fun and really helps to get you into the Christmas spirit.  People are very pleased to see Santa as he makes his way down their road and the children are especially excited to see us all.  It’s a good reminder of what a strong community spirit there is in the area and people are very generous with their donations which of course are going to a great cause – Rennie Grove Hospice Care”.
