Dagenham and Redbridge footballers cheer up sick children at King George Hospital
Dagenham and Redbridge footballers brought some Christmas cheer to young patients at King George Hospital.
They visited the children’s ward at the hospital in Barley Lane, Goodmayes and handed out a Daggers teddy and signed posters to every patient on Monday.
The League Two squad also visited Queen’s Hospital in Romford.
Teddie Barrett, eight, a patient on Queen’s acute children’s assessment department, said: “It cheered me up and made me feel better while I waited for my appointment.”
The Daggers’ manager John Still said: “We do it every year and it’s great that this time we were able to go over to King George Hospital too.
