Over 300 people, many dressed head to toe in elf costumes, took part in the annual one-mile ‘Elf Toddle Walk’ to raise money for the children’s charity CHAS at the Centre in Livingston yesterday, Sunday, November 19.
Following the success of the inaugural event last year, the Christmas celebration was attended by hundreds of little toddlers who embarked on a one-mile walk around the West Lothian shopping centre, which was two laps, joined by acrobatic elves and Christmas characters including a snowman and a reindeer.

Hundreds attended the annual event, where Livingston Women’s FC footballers joined in the fun and carried out a light warm up for the toddlers. And to help get them on their way, Go Radio, who provided the festive tunes on the day, led a Jingle Bells sing-along before the countdown took place and starting whistle was blown.
