Norwich City football players donned Santa hats and raised smiles when they visited young patients at the James Paget University Hospital.

Canaries stars Wes Hoolahan, Robbie Brady, Sebastien Bassong, Youssouf Mulumbu and Jonny Howson brought some early Christmas cheer to the Children’s Ward at the hospital in Gorleston.

They handed out special goody bags and spent time with all the children and their families as well as chatting to nursing staff on the ward, when they visited last week.

Central defender Sebastien Bassong said: “It’s always a huge privilege to be able to bring some happiness at the hospital. Big respect to all the nurses who look after the children. They are wonderful and very courageous kids.”
