Blues players spread some festive cheer this week at Birmingham Children's Hospital.

Members of both the men's and women's squads paid visits to the wards to deliver Christmas presents to patients and meet and chat with parents and staff.

Dan Crowley, David Davis, David Stockdale, Harlee Dean and Lukas Jutkiewicz were accompanied by Claudia Walker, Sarah Mayling and Rachel Williams at the hospital, in the city centre.

"To be in hospital at this time of year especially must be very difficult," commented Blues captain Dean.

"Hopefully we have helped to put a smile on a few faces of those kids less fortunate than most.

"The work that all the staff do at the hospital is tremendous and we wanted to show our support to them as well as visit the boys and girls."
