Santa’s little helpers turned up for lessons at a Shoreham school last week.

Pupils at St Peter’s Catholic Primary School, in Sullington Way, Shoreham, were taking part in a Christmas fund-raising event for Rockinghorse Children’s Charity.

Dress as an Elf on the Twelfth saw schools and businesses taking part in the dress-down day, wearing red and green, or dressed in full elf costume, and donating £1 to support local sick children and babies.

The school admitted they had to cheat a bit and do the fund-raiser on December 13 instead, but the day was still a great success and raised £220 for the charity.

A spokesperson for the school said all the children took part, with many of them dressed in full elf costume and others sporting red and green clothing, and they had a wonderful time. Even head Catherine Walker donned an elf costume for the day!

Rockinghorse is hoping to raise £3,000 for the Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital (the Alex) and the Trevor Mann Baby Unit (TMBU) to help purchase life-saving and cutting-edge medical equipment.

Rockinghorse senior fundraiser Allie Polhill said: “Dress as an Elf on the Twelfth was fantastic fun and we’re so grateful to all the schools and businesses who took part.

“The money raised will make a big difference to local children, including those at the Alex this Christmas.”
