Swans spread festive cheer

20th December 2013

The Swans squad spread more festive cheer to the children at Morriston Hospital during a special Christmas visit.
After hosting hundreds of young patients from the hospital in a special party at the Liberty on Wednesday night, the goodwill was flowing the following day as the team visited kids who couldn't make the original event.
The squad paid for the presents for both parties, with some of the funds generated by the club's very own Pink Ferrari Challenge.
And they were transported to the hospital in the Pink Ferrari itself, with the squad then chatting to children before handing over the gifts and signing autographs.
The visit was organised by club captain Garry Monk, who said it was a real privilege for the team to meet the kids.
"The Christmas Party at the Liberty was a huge success, but the boys felt it was vital for us to visit the kids who couldn't make it to the event," said Monk.
"We didn't want anyone to miss out, so we were very keen to get to meet the kids and spend time with them and their families. It has been a very tough year for a lot of the kids, so seeing the smiles on their faces was heartwarming, and it really was a privilege to meet them.
"We understand the importance this club plays in the community, and it is a visit we certainly hope to make next Christmas too."
