Town players visit Children’s Hospital
- Town players pay a visit to the children at Calderdale Royal Hospital
- David Wagner’s First Team squad visited two local Hospitals
- Comments from Club Ambassador Andy Booth
Several members of Huddersfield Town’s First Team squad paid a visit to the Children’s Ward at Calderdale Royal Hospital in Halifax delivering presents and putting a smile on the faces of the children on the ward.
Along with Club Ambassador Andy Booth, the First Team squad took the children early Christmas presents from the Club that included a variety of Huddersfield Town treats. The remaining members of the squad paid a visit to the Huddersfield Royal Infirmary to deliver presents to the children on the ward there.
David Wagner’s First Team squad also had a collection that was co-ordinated by Club Captain Tommy Smith, with the players using the money to purchase a games console with games and a television for the wards at both hospitals, with the remainder of the money given as a donation.
The visit lifted the spirits of the children on the wards at both hospitals as they were able to meet members of David Wagner’s First Team squad and get autographs and pictures with their heroes.
Huddersfield Town’s Club Ambassador Andy Booth, who joined the players on the visit, commented:
“The players showed the real community spirit of Huddersfield Town and definitely made Christmas for a lot of the young children.
“To take the time out their busy schedules to come and see the children in both hospitals like they did was a great touch. And for them to donate what they did will go a long way and I’m sure both wards will get a of use out of them.”
