Robins visit Children's Centre at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital

18 December 2018

Last Thursday Cheltenham Town players and manager Michael Duff visited the Children's Centre at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital ahead of Christmas.

Five first-team players including Nigel Atangana, Ryan Broom, Conor Thomas, Sean Long and Kevin Dawson were joined by Duff and Assistant Manager Russell Milton.

The players and staff walked from ward to ward with a two-tiered trolley full of gifts to spread some festive cheer to those less fortunate.

Those presents were kindly donated by the Robins Trust, who were represented by Nathan Mattick on the day. 

Club merchandise such as the 2019 community calendar and accessories were handed out along with DVDs, books and a variety of toys - as the players stopped to chat with the kids and their parents - taking photos and signing autographs.

Manager Duff said: "Everyone had a great time and the players enjoyed it just as much as the children did, a few of the kids were starstruck and it was really nice to see a smile on their faces - we hope it made their day."

"We at Cheltenham Town would like to thank the Robins Trust for kindly donating the presents for those less fortunate by not being in the comfort of their own homes this Christmas."

The trip to Gloucestershire Royal is the first of two pre-Christmas visits by the club, as Duff and six more Robins players will be visiting Acorns Children's Hospice later this afternoon.
