Car Hire Birmingham Airport are delighted that some of the players gave up some of their free time to surprise young fans in hospital.
Results for Birmingham have been positive for supporters recently and the players have cheered up the young fans at the city’s Birmingham Heartlands Hospital.
Clayton Donaldson, David Davis, Stephen Gleeson, Jonathan Grounds and captain Paul Robinson gave up their afternoon off to bring some Christmas cheer to poorly youngsters. They also presented staff and patients with a £1,000 cheque, donated by the first team squad, which will be used to buy medical equipment.
Fresh from Saturday’s 2-1 win over Nottingham Forest, the Blues heroes sprinkled a little stardust around the children’s wards by handing out goody bags, posing for pictures and signing autographs.
Gary Rowett’s men spent a couple of hours on wards 15, 16 and 17 chatting to staff and patients and seemed to enjoy the opportunity to give something back to their supporters.
Robinson said “It means such a lot to be able to do something like this. Particularly at Christmas when nobody wants to be ill, everybody wants to be at home with their families. It’s always a good reminder that there are more important things in life than football.”
