1.  Join our Big Mental Elf Dress Up Day

Tuesday 19 December 2023

Whether you choose to join us on this day, or a different day to tie in with your Christmas Party or usual dress down day, encourage everyone to wear something festive in return for a donation of £2 (or more if they choose).

It could be as simple as a bit of tinsel, a Christmas hat or jumper, or go for the full Mental Elf outfit.

2.  Make it Sparkle
