Bristol City play Santa at Children's Hospice

City’s players and staff turned Santa at this festive time of the year during a visit to Children’s Hospice South West at Charlton Farm.

Children’s Hospice South West is the club’s chosen charity for the season, with £15,000 of funds already generated through auctions, donations and bucket collections.

As a special Christmas present to the Hospice, the entire squad and staff visited yesterday to present a brand new therapeutic trampoline, which was received by Children’s Hospice South West chief executive Eddie Farwell.

The Hospice provides important care to life-limited children and their families from across the South West and surrounding areas.

The Charlton Farm Hospice alone costs £3m to run every year. They receive approximately 17% of that funding from the Government, so the rest is dependent solely on the kindness of others through donations.

Everyone got into the Christmas spirit, including Marlon Pack and Scott Wagstaff as they joined the choir for a few carols. The players and staff also helped Santa hand out presents to the children.

The visit ended with a special gift for two City fans at the Hospice, presented by team captain Aaron Wilbraham.
