Boothy and First Team players delivered joy to local hospitals
- First Team players recorded video messages
- Boothy delivered gift bags for children
- Striker Fraizer Campbell also donated presents
Members of Huddersfield Town’s First Team squad delivered some early festive cheer to the children at Calderdale Royal Hospital in Halifax and Huddersfield Royal Infirmary.
Due to Covid-19 restrictions being in place, unfortunately Town’s First Team players were unable to visit the hospital wards in person as usual.
Instead, Danny Ward, Rarmani Edmonds-Green, Romoney Crichlow and Ryan Schofield all recorded video messages to be played for the children and their families.
Club Ambassador Andy Booth also dropped off goody bags full of presents to be given to the children that included a selection of items from the Huddersfield Town Megastore. They also included Champions League mini footballs and bags, which were a kind donation from Cars2.
As well as not being able to have the players visit in person, the hospitals were also unable to arrange donations like they usually would at Christmas due to the pandemic. Therefore, Huddersfield Town First Team striker Fraizer Campbell has chosen to donate presents to the hospital via their Amazon wishlist.
“Usually we get to go and visit the children and their families, but Covid-19 has put a stop to that this year,” he commented.
“I still wanted to do something and get involved because this is my community. I want to help people in my local area and I’ll always try and brighten someone’s day wherever I can.
“This time of year is always difficult for families who have children in hospital, so hopefully I’ve been able to bring a little bit of joy to a tough situation.”
