Notts County Football Club is calling upon the kindness of supporters once again this Christmas to help bring smiles to the faces of the patients in Nottingham Children’s Hospital.
Every year, Magpies fans donate selection boxes, money and gifts, which will be delivered to the children who are unfortunate enough to be in care over the festive period by the first team squad.
Donations can be made to the club shop and organiser, Notts fan Rob Bristol, is hoping that the Black and White Army can come together for the eighth year running to make it the best visit yet.
He said: “It is now that time of year for our great band of supporters to prove once again, that when it comes to caring for others, they are the best!
“The generosity shown by the supporters in previous visits has, to say the least, been staggering and on behalf of the children, their families, and staff at the hospital.
“The selection boxes and presents will put a smile on the face's of many unfortunate children, who find themselves spending their Christmas in the cancer and cystic fibrosis wards among others at Nottingham's Queen’s Medical Centre.
“I thank you from the heart, so come on let us make Christmas 2013 extra special for the children.”
The visit will take place on 12 December, meaning this weekend's game against Gillingham (7 December) is the last chance for supporters to make their donations.
