Saddlers players visit Manor Hospital

23 December 2019

The Walsall squad visited patients at Walsall Manor Hospital before Christmas to help spread a bit of festive cheer.

The players arrived with toys and gifts that were donated by supporters ahead of the game against Macclesfield Town earlier this month.

Patients were delighted to see the Saddlers players visit them and midfielder Stuart Sinclair was pleased to be able to put a few smiles on faces.

“It’s good to come out and spread a bit of festive cheer and brighten up a few peoples day,” he said.

“We’re very fortunate in the way that we are, we’re healthy and we get to do what we want to do so it’s nice to come out and cheer some people up.

“It’s about making sure we get out in the community and helping each other. We’re a community club and it’s a huge part of the club so making sure we’re part of the community is massive.”

Georgie Westley, fundraising manager at the hospital, added: "We look forward to our visit from Walsall Football Club every year as the team is really popular among patients and staff.

"As well as the children's ward, they have also visited some of our elderly patients and enjoyed taking a trip down memory lane and having a laugh."

Walsall Football Club would like to thank all the supporters for their toy donations this year.
