FUTURE football stars have pledged their support to their local children’s hospice with a fun visit to meet children and young people with complex medical conditions.
Players from Liverpool’s Under 21s team came to Claire House Children’s Hospice this week to meet youngsters and have a guided tour around the facility, which has recently been nominated as the team’s chosen charity.
Rising striker-star Jerome Sinclair, 17, and talented midfielder Jordan Williams, 16, spent time playing football video games and chatting with young people who receive respite at the Bebington-based facility.
Claire Bedford, Relationships Manager at Claire House Children’s Hospice, said; “The Liverpool Under 21 team are a wonderful example of giving back to their local community and encouraging young people to get involved with a charity.
“The young people at the hospice, many of whom are keen Liverpool fans, really enjoyed meeting the lads. I think the teenagers in the hospice gave the players a run for their money on the virtual football pitch.”
