Welcoming CPFC footballers on our wards this festive season
09 December 2016

Five players from Crystal Palace Football Club and their coach visited us today to spend time with children and elderly patients on our wards and to present them with gifts in the run-up to Christmas. 

Robert Manzi, 85, from Upper Norwood, who has loved football all his life, was overwhelmed at meeting the players while he was being cared for on the Acute Care of the Elderly Ward. “I have been a fan of Crystal Palace since I was five years old," he said. "Meeting the players has made me feel really emotional.”

John Goulston, chief executive said: "We are so thrilled that the players and their coach all gave up their time to visit us today and brought Christmas presents for our patients. Being poorly and in hospital is never easy and it really gave everyone such a boost to meet the players and chat with them.”
