The Bath Rugby Foundation Team, along with Academy member Joe Buckle, visited St Johns Hospital today to deliver their annual Christmas hampers to all the residents – it was quite a challenge!
The Foundation team were dressed as elves with red and green tights and Santa Hats with Jimmy Deane, Foundation Manager dressed as a Christmas Fairy wearing a white tutu and wings!! They visited Combe Park in Weston followed by a visit to all the residents in various houses across the city. As the team delivered the hampers, they sang carols and greeted everyone with a hearty ‘Merry Christmas.’
As part of their Festivities week, they have also visited Dorothy House and tomorrow will be going to the Children’s Christmas Party at the Royal United Hospital.
After working tirelessly during the year on a variety of projects involving sport, education and inclusion, they all enjoyed spreading a bit of community cheer.
The hampers are provided to the residents each year by St Johns Hospital.
