This cheerful and charming young elf – Molly by name – took a well-earned rest after the 5km Santa Fun Run for Princess Alice Hospice, on Sunday.
It was the first ever charity event which Molly, six, has taken part in – and mum Katie Kean said she did the two laps of the lake “without a single grumble – this was 100 per cent down to the lovely marshals and the positive atmosphere along the route”.
Molly, a Year 1 pupil at Guildford High School, was so keen to help raise vital funds for the Hospice that she also organised her own “Homemade arts and crafts sale”, inviting neighbours to buy her handmade origami figures and hama bead coasters, which raised £26.50.
Molly, who lives in Walton, really wants to do the fun run again next year. The run was held for the first time at Painshill Park, the stunning 18th Century landscape garden in Cobham.
Katie said: “I've already mentioned it to her classmates’ mums, so hopefully we'll get a crowd of little elves at Painshill next time.”
