The Bromley Football Club Community Sports Trust were delighted to visit the Princess Royal University Hospital for two weeks running, aiming to spread some festive cheer in the children’s ward.
Each member of the First Team squad attended the visits, with presents being handed out to children receiving treatment on the ward. Players also spoke to the children and their families, and posed for photographs, aiming to make their stay on the ward a little brighter.
Sophie Roffe, Play Specialist on the ward, commented: “A huge thank you to the wonderful Bromley Football Club players and staff for taking time out of their busy schedules to come and spend some time with the children and families on the Children’s Ward at the PRUH.
This visit meant so much to lots of our patients and their families, enabling a sense of normality for them in even in a hospital environment. We are all so grateful for the time they spend with us, and the presents they kindly brought along with you to give to every patient. We look forward to working with the Club and the Trust further in 2024.”
Head of Community Matt Hall added; “Community is at the heart of all that we do, and we genuinely look forward to our visit to the PRUH every year. The chance to make a difference to these young people’s lives at this time of year is something we’re very proud to be able to do. Our players thoroughly enjoy being able to have a positive impact on our Community, and it was brilliant to see them all spreading festive cheer on the Children’s Ward. We were even able to visit a couple of Bromley supporters too! We’re grateful to Sophie, Georgianna, Jade and all the team on the Ward for making us feel so welcome, and to the Bromley Children and Families Forum for kindly donating the presents.”
