Santa's Post Office Elves!

Looking forwards to getting into the Christmas Spirit? Enjoy interacting with children? Then we need you.....

Santa’s Post Office is coming to the Hart Shopping Centre, Fleet from 24th Nov– 23rd Dec.

We are looking for enthusiastic young people to volunteer as Santa’s Elves; giving children a great start to the festive holidays as they write and post their letters to Santa.

Elves will be helping the children with their letters to Santa and ensuring that their  parents / guardians  complete the correct information to ensure their child receives a letter back from Mr Claus!

In return for the 'Post Office' being manned by volunteer elves - The Fleet Business Improvement District (Fleet Bid), who have kindly organised the event, will make a donation to our youth counselling service which currently offers 60 counselling places per week for 11-25 year olds and faces a £20,000 deficit for 2019.


We are looking for elves that can really act the part with lots of positivity and enthusiasm to make the activity a great experience coupled with some supervision to ensure it doesn’t get too crowded – there will be an adult present at all times!

You can volunteer for as many shifts as you wish; although this is not envisaged to be a big commitment! The shifts range between 2 and 4 hours and you can volunteer with a friend or part of a small group.

During the week the 'post office' is open between 3pm and 5pm so ideal for students.

Elf costumes are provided.

Volunteers must be 14+ and is suitable for students or small groups looking for a corporate volunteer opportunity.
