RLI Children’s Ward Visit

DATE: 2019-20 Season

VENUE: Royal Lancaster Infirmary

Each year Morecambe FC Community Sports and the first team squad head over to the Royal Lancaster Infirmary Children's Ward to meet those on the wards, spread some festive cheer and hand out Christmas presents that get donated by supporters, Shrimps Trust and Community Sports.

R.L.I Christmas Visit

Our annual R.L.I Christmas visit to the children’s wards have always been an important part of our community initiatives.

Every season we head down to spread some festive cheer. Along with the Morecambe FC First team squad, representatives from the Shrimps Trust and also ourselves, Community Sports. The Football Club organise the event alongside Community Sports and it has always been a special time of year.

Aims of the annual visit:

This has always been to make Christmas a more enjoyable time for those less fortunate that ourselves. Meeting the children and handing out wrapped presents to those on the wards.

Every year we encourage supporters of the club to help towards the toy and game appeal. This helps us to get more gifts for the R.L.I Children’s Wards.

Throughout the past few years we have had plenty of generosity from people. Sending across new toys and games that they have donated. These items get wrapped up and sent to the hospital. Aiming to make it a better time for those that don’t have many presents to open at Christmas.

Quotes on the R.L.I Christmas Visit:

Head of Morecambe FC Community Sports, Janet Preston added: “It’s very nice to give something to the people having a hard time.

“Its always a struggle when you have a loved one in hospital, especially at Christmas. “Those children miss out on all the build-up to Christmas they would otherwise get in school and at home. So this particular visit is really important.

“It’s nice to highlight some of the good work that goes on away from football that the players get involved in all year round.”

It’s always a great feeling to see plenty of happy faces around the Children’s Ward around Christmas.
