Brighton & Hove Albion captain Gordon Greer enjoyed visiting Worthing Hospital on Tuesday to deliver some much-needed festive cheer to the children ahead of Christmas.
Greer along with David Stockdale, Jake Forster-Caskey and women's team players, Charley Boswell, Faye Baker and Lisa Fulgence, delivered presents, posed for photographs and signed pictures for patients at the hospital’s Bluefin Ward on Tuesday.
He told seagulls.co.uk, “It’s really good to do something like this because it keeps you involved in the community.
“It’s really important to be here at this time of year, because there a number of sick children who are unfortunate enough to be spending Christmas in hospital.
“We’re here to give a little something back and it was great that the children seemed really excited to see us. Hopefully it has made their day.
“We get to do a lot of activities in the community throughout the year, but I love to be a part of this one in particular. It’s important for the players and the whole club to be involved in this event.”
