Dundee Football Club spread some Christmas cheer today when the team stopped by to visit patients at Ninewells hospital.
The first team squad and management took time out of their busy training schedule to visit patients in the medical ward, surgical ward and outpatient clinic in Tayside Children’s Hospital, as well as the new major trauma centre and one of the orthopaedic wards.
The players also chipped in money to purchase gifts and spent time signing autographs and posing for photographs with the patients.
First team player Cammy Kerr said, “It’s great to be able to visit Ninewells and spread some Christmas cheer to the patients in the children’s wards. It’s important for us as a club to be at the heart of the community and put others first at this time of year.”
Play specialist Una Paton said, “Our annual Christmas visit from Dundee FC is always great fun for the patients and staff in Tayside Children’s Hospital. Having to be in hospital at this time of year is never easy but these visits really help to lift everyone’s spirits and make it a bit more bearable for the kids.
“On behalf of all the patients and staff, I’d like to thank the players for taking the time to come in and brighten up our day.”
