West Ham legend visits poorly kids in hospital

26 December 2015


Footballing legend Tony Cottee has visited the children’s ward at Southend University Hospital.

The ex-West Ham player visited Neptune ward to deliver a parcel for the wards arts and crafts and sensory trolleys provided by the national children's charity Clowns in the Sky.

Mr Cottee, who has been patron of the charity for the last five years, made the visit with the charity's development officer Donna Byrne and made young Hammers fan Danny Glover, 10, from Canvey, very happy.

Tony said: "I love coming into hospitals and seeing kids and leaving them with smiles on their faces, it shows what a difference we are making."

Clowns in the Sky provide arts and crafts trolleys and portable sensory trolleys to hospitals across England.
