Christmas cheer for brave kids

12th December 2017

The Swans provided some Christmas cheer to the local kids of Swansea during a special party at the Liberty Stadium on Monday night.

The annual event was staged for hundreds of children who have spent time at the Dyfed Ward of Morriston Hospital throughout the year, plus other youngsters from the local community who had been through a difficult time recently.

Organised by the Swans along with nursing staff at Morriston Hospital and local businessman Phil Lake, the Christmas bash once again proved a big success as the players met youngsters for photos, autographs and a chat.

Swans goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski was part of the squad in attendance, and he underlined the importance of the event.

“It is an important event for the whole squad to be part of as it puts a massive smile on the children’s faces at a very special time of the year,” said the Polish stopper

“These children have had a tough time this year, and for us to spend time with them is a real privilege.

“All of the players had as good a night as all the children in attendance, and we hope to see them all again soon.”

Club ambassador Lee Trundle was among the Swans contingent at the party.

He added: "This event is among the best that we attend throughout the year - the kids absolutely love mixing with the players and chatting to them.

"As a football club we know how important the community is for the Swans, so this is just a small way of giving something back.

“We all had heroes to look up to when we were children, and when you get to meet them it is a moment you never forget.

“The players are all aware of how much these kids look up to them, and they were delighted to meet them all.

“The party will help kick off the festive season in good fashion, and hopefully everyone will have a fantastic Christmas."
