Crewe Alex players visit children in hospital
9:00am Tuesday 24th December 2013 in News
Dario Gradi MBE and members of Crewe Alexandra Football Club’s Under 18s team gave up their free time recently to visit the Child and Adolescent Unit of Leighton Hospital.
The Under 18s have played for the club since aged 8 and, whilst in top form themselves, wanted to give something to those in the community who were not so fortunate.
The players brought along souvenirs and merchandise donated by the club and spent an afternoon chatting to the young children and their parents whilst distributing the gifts.
Speaking on the Unit, Dario Gradi MBE, Director of Football, said: “This initiative came wholly from the players. They have given up their time to spend with the children and we look forward to doing more in the future.”
Sue Palin, Housekeeper for the Unit, added: “Our young patients were thrilled with the team spending time with them. It genuinely gives parents and patients a real boost, especially at this time of year.”
