Sheffield United players and management send Christmas spiritÂ around the city with hospice and hospital visits
Sheffield United players and management took time away from their bid for promotion to spread the Christmas spirit around the city on Tuesday.Â Â
Members of the Blades squad, including for the first time, those from the women's team met with patients, families, workers and volunteers fromÂ Weston Park Hospital, Sheffield Children's Hospital, St Luke's Hospice, Bluebell Wood Children's HospiceÂ and the S2 Foodbank.
Whiole there they handed out gifts, donated byÂ the players, United's vice presidents, PriceCheck UK and Blades' sponsors HE Barnes and Shepherd Distribution.
"As these organisations are our nominated charities, we workÂ all year round with them, but the festive period is the perfect opportunity for the club to conduct these visits and try and make a big difference for all our fans in hospitals, hospices or those needing support," said operations directorÂ Dave McCarthy.Â 'We've seen the fantastic work these organisations do first-hand, so we were honoured to once again visit and wish everyone a Merry Christmas."
