"It’s also good to spend a bit of time with parents as well – it’s a difficult time of year for them – and pay our respects to the nurses who do such a great job.
"A lot of us live locally in the community and lot of the guys have children. The lads were certainly humbled to see so many brave kids.
"We also went into the A&E ward and brightened up a few people’s days. Some of them were kids who’ve been injured at school and were only in for a check-up.
"But hopefully it made them feel a bit better on their road to recovery."
Sam Wedgbury (pictured above) added, "It’s always good to be able to put a smile on people’s faces at this festive period and hopefully our visit was something different for the youngsters to enjoy. We’re lucky to do what we do and it’s good to be able to give something back.”
