Town players take early Christmas presents to children

- HTAFC squad visit children’s ward at Halifax Hospital
- Town players’ annual hospital visit
- Quote from Club Ambassador Andy Booth

Huddersfield Town’s First Team squad visited the children’s ward at Calderdale Royal Hospital in Halifax on Thursday morning and put a smile on some of their young fans’ faces.

Alongside Club Ambassador Andy Booth, the First Team squad took the children early Christmas presents. The gift bag included lots of Huddersfield Town treats, one of which was a flag!

A visit was scheduled to the Huddersfield Royal Infirmary, thankfully the ward was relatively empty which meant the children at the Calderdale Royal Hospital were surprised by the whole squad.

Club Captain Mark Hudson led the players into the ward to meet the children, who were very excited about meeting some of their favourite stars.

The players gave the children a day to remember as they were able to meet members of David Wagner’s First Team squad, get autographs and have their pictures with them.

Huddersfield Town’s Club Ambassador Andy Booth, who accompanied the players on the visit, commented:

“The hospital visits are an annual tradition of the Club near Christmas time and it’s really important that we give those children and families a day to remember as we get into the festive period.

“All the players were more than willing to get involved and it was great to see some of the kids faces when the whole squad walked through the door.

“A lot of the children got to meet their local heroes and they loved their early Christmas presents from the players as well!

“On behalf of the Club, I would like to thank the staff and patients for the welcome they gave the squad.”
