Captain and Community Ambassador spread some festive cheer with a surprise visit at local school

Jay Spearing and Community Ambassador Tony Kelly paid a festive visit to Green Fold Special School on Wednesday afternoon.

The school, based in Farnworth, falls under The Orchards which also houses Cherry Tree Primary.

And prior to the youngsters' Christmas break, captain Spearing and Kelly made a surprise visit to their classes.

Taking time to chat to the pupils, the Liverpudlians also signed autographs and spread some Christmas cheer.

Speaking following the visit, Spearing said, "I really enjoyed coming down here today - it's an incredible place and the kids are a real credit to the school.

"Everybody made us feel so welcome and the teachers and carers at Green Fold do a brilliant job.

"It's so important for us to get out into the local community and when you see the smiles on the kids' faces, it makes it all worthwhile."
