Stags spread Christmas cheer at hospital

Posted onPosted on 11th Dec

Mansfield Town’s first-team players paid a festive visit to poorly children at King’s Mill Hospital.

The Stags’ squad took time from their busy training schedule to deliver presents to kids at the children’s ward in the Sutton hospital.

Gifts were bought by funds from the players, along with monies accumulated from a stall at the Stags’ recent Christmas Fayre at One Call Stadium, while Booker Wholesale also contributed towards presents.

Stags’ boss David Flitcroft said: “I’m a dad myself and I know what this type of visit means to the children.

“A visit from their heroes creates a real feel-good factor and the lasting impression that is left with kids from our community is worth its weight in gold.

“Players can have a real impact on people in our area, especially at such a special time of year.

“We send our best wishes to the players on the children’s ward at King’s Mill and wish them and their families a happy and peaceful Christmas.”
