During the afternoon, left-back Danny Rose, full-back Ben Davies and midfielders Nabil Bentaleb and Ryan Mason made their way around Dolphin Ward, speaking to patients and families, and posing for photos with the children.
One football fan who was looking forward to the visit was four-year-old Taylor Jackson from Cheshunt in Hertfordshire. His mother, Lyndsey Jackson said: “Although he’s an Arsenal fan, Taylor was amazed when he met the players.
“The visit really brightened his day and put a huge smile on his face.”
Ben Davies, pictured with two month old Kie Harrison from Sawbridgeworth, said: “The visit was a great experience. I’ve really enjoyed the afternoon.”
PAH Play Specialist, Rachel Naunton who arranged the event praised the way the players engaged and interacted with everyone on the ward. “They were extremely kind and friendly and they showed great compassion towards the children.”
She added: “It’s always lovely to bring smiles to the faces of those children who are with us over the Christmas period, and this visit from the Spurs team certainly did that.”
