ALBION players brought festive cheer and joy this afternoon with a visit to Birmingham Children's Hospital.

First-team players Ben Foster, Gareth McAuley, Joleon Lescott, Craig Gardner and Chris Brunt played games with the youngsters, before handing out presents.

The club are supporting the hospital's 'Let Us Play' Appeal and also donated two PS4 Consolves with FIFA15, donated by our Principal Partner Intuit QuickBooks.

The 'Let Us Play' appeal is helping to raise money to build a playroom for each ward at Birmingham Children’s Hospital.

We also handed over a signed home shirt for the hospital to raffle to raise money for the cause.

Club captain Brunt said: "This is always a difficult time for families who have loved ones in hospital.

"It's a fantastic experience and privilege for us to bring a smile to the faces of the children.

"'Let Us Play' is a also brilliant cause which we're delighted to support. We wish all children and staff at our local hospitals a happy and peaceful Christmas."

Albion players also visited the children's ward of the Sandwell Hospital last week.
