As part of this year’s Blues Give a Gift campaign, club staff and supporters joined forces to spread some Christmas cheer at Birmingham Children’s Hospital.

The team turned ward 10 neurosurgery into a Blues winter wonderland while the play department was decorated in the traditional red, green and gold Christmas colours.

The festive season has officially begun and the first-team squad's annual hospital visits will soon be upon us. Thousands of pounds worth of presents have been purchased and will be wrapped next Thursday at St. Andrew's in a mammoth wrapping session with staff, supporters and companies who have supported Blues Give a Gift all ready to lend a helping hand.

The first-team squad will be handing out presents to the children in wards 14, 15 and 16 at Heartlands Hospital and wards 5, 10, surgical daycare and medical daycare at Birmingham Children’s Hospital the week before Christmas.
