Stanley Spread Christmas Cheer

Accrington Stanley players visited the Royal Blackburn Hospital on their annual Christmas visit to the children’s unit.

Last week the players and management team took time out from their schedule to visit the Children’s wards at the hospital and meet children and their families. The players gave out a variety of gifts to hopefully spread a little Christmas cheer to those in hospital at this time of year.


The club very kindly donated balls and T shirts which the players gladly signed before handing out. Stanley FC Trust also donated a selection of children’s books and other gifts for the players to hand out.

Stanley Captain Seamus Conneely is a veteran of the annual event and explain ‘its always a special afternoon and its nice that we can do something to help support these children and their families. It’s not much but the children and parents are always happy to see us and it does spread a little cheer’
