Tim Ream, Craig Davies, Darren Pratley, Kevin McNaughton, David Wheater, Sanmi Odelusi, Medo Kamara and Tony Kelly give out Christmas presents at Bolton Hospice
Seven members of Wanderers' first team squad spent time at Bolton Hospice on Thursday afternoon to spread some festive cheer amongst the patrons there.
An organisation which provides free palliative care for people in Bolton who are facing cancer and other life-limiting illnesses, the care is delivered at the Inpatient Unit, Support Services or in a patient’s own home.
Tim Ream, Craig Davies, Darren Pratley, Kevin McNaughton, David Wheater, Sanmi Odelusi and Medo Kamara, alongside Community Ambassador Tony Kelly, took time out of their schedule to deliver gifts to a number of the Hospice’s day patients and permanent residents, with those there being treated to various gift sets, chocolates and biscuits amongst other treats.
Speaking following the visit, Ream said: "This is my third year visiting Bolton Hospice and it really is a very humbling experience each time that I go.
"It is clear to see how hard the staff work at the Hospice itself, and also how much their efforts are appreciated by the patients there who we really enjoyed meeting.
"It's only a small part of our time that we're giving up, but when you see the smiles on their faces, it makes it all worthwhile and you feel so grateful for what you actually have, especially at Christmas time."
