Blues Give a Gift - Part Three

This year's Blues Give a Gift campaign concluded with the squad's annual trip to the Birmingham Children's Hospital.

Members of Lee Clark's first-team squad came armed with gifts and big smiles to bring some festive cheer to those youngsters and their families unfortunate enough to be spending Christmas in hospital.

The players kept youngsters entertained in the playroom with pool, table football and console games before heading off to play the role of Santa around various wards.

The presents were kindly paid for by the first-team players as well as donations from several local companies including £1,000 each from Quilter Cheviot and The Lilly Mae Foundation.

The Lily Mae Foundation was set up in July 2010 in memory of a very special little girl and is determined to change public perception of stillbirth and neonatal death. For more information visit: www.lilymaefoundation.org.
