Millers visit Rotherham Hospice...
Members of Rotherham United’s playing and first team staff enjoyed afternoon tea with the patients and staff at Rotherham Hospice on Thursday afternoon in a community visit to the Broom-based charity.
Paul Warne, Richie Barker and Matt Hamshaw joined John Breckin and a number of the Millers players as they met patients from the day care and inpatient units.
The players and staff in attendance signed autographs and posed for photos before sitting down to enjoy a brew in the company of some of the hospice staff on duty.
Club Consultant John Breckin expressed his thanks on behalf of everyone at the club to a charity he holds dear for the opportunity to visit on Thursday afternoon.
“So many of our supporters have witnessed the fantastic work that the Rotherham Hospice provides to the local community, either first-hand or through friends and relatives,” he told www.themillers.co.uk.
“We were given a typically warm hospice welcome on our arrival and the patients and staff were only too happy to chat with the lads.
“It is a charity very close to my own heart and one that we are lucky to have and be proud to call our own here in Rotherham, so I was delighted so many of us were able to go up there and show our support for the work that they do.
“I know how proud the club are of their strong affiliation with both the Rotherham and Bluebell Wood hospices so we are delighted to have visited both over the course of the last month.”
