Hull FC players visit Hull Royal Infirmary

Hull FC squad members Joe Westerman, Chris Green, Brad Fash, Mickey Paea and Jordan Lane help spread the festive spirit, paying a visit to Hull Royal Infirmary children’s ward.

The first-team stars handed out gifts to young children in the Women’s and Children’s Hospital, in an annual tradition for the club, giving a timely pick-up to children unfortunate enough to be spending the Christmas period in hospital.

“It’s really important to us to get out into the community at this time of year and put some smiles on the faces to those who are in a less fortunate situation than ourselves,” said Jordan Lane.
“Nobody wants to be in hospital at Christmas time so we’re just here to do what we can and hopefully brighten up some of the youngsters’ days.”
Mickey Paea added: “Some of the kids in here are doing it tough at the moment. It’s a reminder of the reality that some people won’t be spending Chistmas in the comfort of their own homes.
“Some of us have young kids of our own, so it’s a reminder of the reality of how tough life cansometimes be at what is meant to be a happy time of year.”
