A SPA in Ascot are treating people who work as elves to some special spa treatments before the busy Christmas season.

Macdonald Berystede Hotel & Spa in Ascot are offering people who work as Santa’s helper a choice of free tester treatments.

The Spa is running the competition to give people who work as elves time to relax before Christmas festivities get into full swing.

Emma Leadbeater, Macdonald Hotels Spa Director, said: “amongst the hustle and bustle of festivities, Macdonald Spa Collection can provide the perfect place to relax and recoup in the run-up to the big day - a particularly stressful time of year for Santa’s little helpers.

“We can’t wait to see the competition entries and look forward to welcoming Santa’s elves to treat them to some well-earned pampering.”

Massages and facials will both be available to competition winners, using the best professional products. After a 30-minute treatment all other facilitates will be free to use, including the sauna.

To take part in the competition, those working as elves should contact the spa along with proof of their festive occupation by Wednesday, December 12.
