PATIENTS on the children’s wards at Whiston Hospital were delighted when SuperLeague stars from Saints and Widnes Vikings and soccer players from Everton and Liverpool football clubs visited to personally wish them all the best.

They also handed hats, flags, calendars, and selections boxes to appreciative youngsters.

Sally Duce, manager and Lead Nurse of the Children’s and Young People’s Department, said: “They were really excited to see their rugby and football heroes and I’m sure that many of the children’s families and the staff enjoyed the visits too. It’s extremely kind of the players to spend time with those in hospital over the festive period. We all wish the players a healthy and happy New Year.”
