Sky Blues trio, Jordan Willis, Lee Burge and Tom Davies visited the University Hospital of Coventry and Warwickshire.

The players came full with bags of Coventry City gifts, including footballs, teddy bears, bags, caps and much more, as well as photos to sign and give to patients.

Willis, Burge and Davies went around the children’s wards at the hospital, visiting the families of new-borns, young children and teenagers, who are currently being treated at UHCW.

The lads spent all afternoon at the hospital, handing out gifts, posing for photos and talking to the children and their families and brightening up people’s day.

Sky Blues defender, Tom Davies said:

“It’s brilliant to be able to come to the hospital.

“It’s nice to come and spend some time here and hopefully we can brighten up some people’s days.

“This time of the year isn’t a nice place to be in a hospital, and an hour or two out of our week is nothing when we can come and put a smile on some people’s faces.

“It’s sad, you feel for them nobody wants to be in hospital at any time, especially at Christmas and hopefully we can hand out a few toys and make people feel a bit happier."

Mark Hornby, Head of Marketing and Communications said:

"The Christmas hospital visit is always a highlight of the calendar, and a very rewarding one for everyone involved.

"To be in hospital for these young children is not nice, especially at Christmas, but the staff and volunteers at the hospital do a great job caring for them and making it as good a place to be as possible. Our NHS does fantastic work, and we should all be grateful for them.

"We were delighted to visit the hospital again to hand out gifts, and wish all patients, staff and volunteers at the hospital a very happy christmas."
