Macmillian Cancer Support is asking locals to get fit and festive by taking part in their annual Christmas Elf Walk to raise money for people affected by cancer.

The charity walk takes place on 11 December and will guide entrants on 3.5 mile tour around Sophia Gardens, Blackweir and Pontcanna Fields.

Fancy dress is encouraged and there are prizes for best dressed adult, children and dog entrants, as well as for the most money raised by 31 December.

Last year’s event saw 160 locals put on their elf hats and raised more than £10,000.

Rebecca Parke, Macmillan Fundraising Manager for Cardiff, Vale of Glamorgan and Caerphilly, says all money goes to local cancer services.

“We hope more members in the local area come together to beat last year’s success,” she says.
