After its huge success last year, Samantha Gargett of Elton Business Support & Elton Finance called upon businesses to join her Christmas “Elton Elf” campaign and she has secured some amazing donation pledges for Eden Valley Hospice/Jigsaw and CFM Cash for Kids.

Samantha asked for 20 businesses to sign up as “Selfie with Elfie” Partners, each of whom were asked to pledge £100 each to the fundraiser. Despite it being a few months before the Christmas campaign officially launches, to her absolute delight all 20 places were snapped up quickly. “I am overwhelmed, but not at all surprised by the generosity of the businesses that have agreed to take part this year. Without them this campaign simply wouldn’t work, so this really is a great start” said Sam.

In return for their donation, each business will receive a special visit from Elton Elf for a team selfie. The “Selfie with Elfie” photos will then be shared with the public across social media sites and at competition entry points as part of the main competition due to launch on the 21st November, which will continue the fundraising and add to the total already pledged.

The businesses who have signed up are: Sally’s Cottages, PPM Ltd, Armstrong Watson, Cartmell Shepherd Solicitors, Rachael Bell Wealth Management, NXT Recruitment, Paramount Legal Costs, Thomson, Hayton Winkley Solicitors, North West Business & Hospitality Show, John Watt Coffee, H&H Reeds Printers, Family Business Network, AST Signs, Kaveney HR Solutions, Walton Goodland Surveyors, Cumbria Health On Call, Lamont Pridmore, Arnold Clark, One Little Bird PR and Logic Business Systems.
