Rotherham United players and staff have been out and about in the community in the build-up to Christmas to pass on our sincere thanks to local charities Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice and the Rotherham Hospice for everything they do for our community.
The annual visits took place earlier in the week with club captain Sean Morrison leading the contingent of players to Bluebell Wood, while Honorary Life President and Rotherham Hospice ambassador John Breckin was joined by squad members at the Broom-based charity.
As a club, we feel that it is imperative that we continue to support these two amazing causes, whilst placing a real emphasis on showing them our gratitude for their work during the festive period.
Whilst we are getting our football fix or spending time with our loved ones over the festive period, others may not be so fortunate and may be going through the toughest time of their lives.
Helping them through it are the amazing nurses and medical and pastoral professionals, who forego time with their own families to be there for the people who need it the most and we want them to know that we are eternally indebted to them for everything they do for the local area.
We know that our gesture of a visit at Christmas time isn’t earth-shattering, but we hope that representation from the club can put smiles on the faces of patients, families and staff alike during the festive period.
Everyone at Rotherham United would like to take this opportunity to express our sincere thanks to everyone associated with Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice and the Rotherham Hospice.
