The Magpies' Children's Hospital Visit

11 December 2012

Notts County first team made their annual visit to Nottingham Children’s Hospital on Monday afternoon.

Players, coaching staff, including first team manager Keith Curle, and board members Jim Rodwell and Aileen Trew presented the young patients with selection boxes and gifts donated by supporters.

The players and football staff also put together a cash donation of £750 that will be spent as the hospital see fit. 

County fan Rob Bristol, who organises the Christmas and Easter appeals each year, was once again delighted with the response from the County faithful and the squad’s generosity. 

He told the official site: “It was excellent and well supported by the fans, players and staff. 

“We had over 1,000 selection boxes, which could have possibly exceeded our record amount from last year.

“It was an excellent gesture on the players’ part and shows what a family orientated club Notts County are and that they care about the community they represent.”

Notts’ boss Curle spoke of the importance of the players taking part in such worthwhile community activities.

He added: “It was a fantastic opportunity for us as a football club to put some smiles on the faces of the children, who are not quite as fortunate as ourselves at the minute.

“The players’ donation was a fantastic gesture on their part and the club has donated a lot of gifts as well and it sums up the community spirit at the football club.” 

The club would like to thank supporters all of the supporters that volunteered on the day and helped to make the visit a big success.
