National Elf Service – ambulance medics deliver presents to sick children on Christmas Day

This Christmas hundreds of sick children who are spending the festive period in hospital and care will be delivered presents from kind-hearted London Ambulance Service teams. For the seventh year running, paramedic Nigel Flanagan and his team of ‘elf helpers’ (ambulance service colleagues) will be swapping their green uniforms to the red of Santa Claus to deliver presents on Christmas morning to children in hospitals, hospices and those in the care of social services across London. Staff at the Service are being encouraged to donate gifts for children aged up to 16 years old, which can then be shared with the children around the capital.
