Goalkeeper, Harry Voss, and midfielder, Joe Pritchard delivered Easter eggs and goodies to the ward’s inpatients, who were “over the moon” to meet the young players.

Sarah Otley, play lead for Whittington Health, said: “We are hugely grateful to the players for taking the time to visit the children. There was a lot of excitement on the ward and it was lovely to see the look on some our younger patients’ faces – and even some of the parents’ faces too – as they got to meet the players.

“It can be very difficult for our younger patients to spend time in hospital, that’s why visits like this are so important, and I’d like to thank the club and the players for their generosity.”
