Swans spread festive cheer

6th December 2016

The Swans provided some Christmas cheer to the local kids of Swansea during a special party at the Liberty Stadium.
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 midfielder Leroy Fer was part of the squad in attendance, and he underlined the importance of the event.
"This is the first Christmas party I've been part of with Swansea, and I've really enjoyed meeting all the kids and their families," said the Dutch international.
"Just spending time and talking with them has been a real privilege for me. They have had a tough time in the year, but we see them smiling and enjoying themselves and that means the world to us.
"On the pitch we haven't had a great time, but it's important for us to do what we can off the pitch too. Hopefully we can get three points against Sunderland on Saturday - that will make everyone's smiles even bigger."
Club ambassador Lee Trundle was also part of the Swans contingent at the party. He added: "We are out and about in the community a lot as a club, and this event is among the best - the kids love it.
"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.
"For the kids it's great to meet Premier League players who they watch at the Liberty and on TV. When I look around the party, I can see the players having just as much fun as the kids and families.
"This party will help kick off the festive season in good fashion, and hopefully everyone will have a fantastic Christmas."
