Chelsea stars surprise Westminster Hospital

08/12/2017

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte and plenty of the First Team stars surprised patients, their families and the staff at Westminster Hospital on Thursday!

After training at Cobham for Saturday's London derby match against West Ham (which you can read a preview of HERE), the Chelsea team travelled to the hospital to meet some of the patients and hand out presents.



Midfield maestro Eden Hazard spoke to the official Chelsea website about how important the visit was.

'It’s something all of the players look forward to every year because it’s nice for us to see the kids. They are always very happy when we arrive and you can see the excitement on their faces.



'We handed out some Chelsea presents and had photos taken with the kids so if we can spread some happiness, especially at this time of year, that’s fantastic.

'We go to the hospital every year and it’s very important for us to be able to give something back.'



Alvaro Morata added: 'It is a good day for me and the team because it is a really good thing to come here to spend some time with these children and other people here in the hospital. We need to do this every year because it is good for us because we can think about how fortunate we are. It is incredible how the children fight against their adversities and we are happy to meet them.’



Kat Webb, senior staff nurse at the hospital, also spoke to Chelseafc.com: ‘Christmas is a really busy time for us. The children that have been here for a good few days and weeks, they have been bouncing in the corridor, showing off their packs. They have had lovely presents and for some of the parents, they have got lovely stories to go back and tell other kids at home and it is brilliant for morale. It is the highlight of our winter.’

After the hospital visit, the Chelsea team went to see some of more young football fans at the BridgeKids Christmas party, which you can read about HERE!
