City enjoy festive visit to CHSW

City made their annual Christmas visit to the Children's Hospice South West at Charlton Farm today.

The club has enjoyed a special relationship with CHSW for the past three seasons, raising over £80,000 for the charity, as well raising awareness.

This afternoon the club's first-team squad and coaching staff visited Charlton Farm, along with representatives from the Bristol City Community Trust.

Players got involved in the games room, soft play area, the arts and crafts room and also handed out presents to the youngsters.

Caring for over 500 families across the South West of England, CHSW provide care for children with life-limiting conditions and their whole family. The care ranges from respite and short breaks, emergency care, palliative care and end of life care.

Charlton Farm is one of three hospices operated by CHSW, with the trio costing £9m to keep running each year. Just 17 per cent of their funding comes from the Government, so they rely heavily on generous donations and fundraising.
