The Guinness World Record attempt for the largest gathering of people dressed like Christmas elveswill be held at Baddeley Park on Friday, December 2 at 6.15pm.

Participants must weara red and green shirt, an elf hat andears to be part of the world record attempt.

Elf hats are available for $5 each atLJ Hooker Cessnock, East Cessnock Bowling Club, Cessnock Memo andArt and West Cessnock Newsagency, with 100 percentof profits going to local domestic violence refuge Jodie’s Place.

LJ Hooker Cessnock is also collecting unwrapped new toys, non-perishable food and monetarydonations for the refuge once again this Christmas.

General manager Mellissa Gibson said the business was proud to support Jodie’s Place, which is run by volunteers and receives no government funding.

“Last year our fundraising allowed the centre to run effectively non-stop over the holiday period,” she said.

“It also allowed the families impacted by domestic violence to enjoy a normalChristmas period as possible with a hot lunch and presents for all of the children.”

Ms Gibson said community service is a pivotal focus of their business.

“We live by the rule that even the smallest of kind gestures can have positive repercussions for an individual or family,” she said.

“While we are proud of all our community involvement and the benefits it has on our community, one particular initiative holds a place close to our hearts; ‘Jodie’s Place’.”
