Blues players in visits to hospices and hospitals

Town players have been visiting local hospices and hospitals this week to deliver presents and spend time with patients.

The players were split into groups as they visited the children's wards at Colchester Hospital, Ipswich Hospital and West Suffolk Hospital, as well as trips to East Anglia's Children's Hospice (EACH), St Elizabeth Hospice and St Nicholas Hospice.

All players from the Blues senior squad donated money to buy individual presents for patients as well as communal gifts for the children's wards.

"I have a family and lots of guys in the squad have families so it really hits home how tough a time this can be for people," Blues skipper Luke Chambers told the Club website.

"Things are certainly put into perspective when you make these trips and it's a humbling experience to meet the patients and their families as well as the people that work at the hospitals and hospices.

"They are all truly amazing people and they don't get the recognition they deserve so it's important we make these visits and help in any small way we can."

A special thank you must go to Hughes Electrical and Smyths Toy Store who provided discounted toys and items that were purchased with the money donated by the players.
