The Northern Ireland Children’s Hospice has been the official partner charity of Linfield Football Club for several years and this club and supporters of this club have helped raise thousands of pounds for this worthwhile and very special charity over that period.
At this special family Christmas time of year, Linfield personnel paid a visit to the Children’s Hospice in Newtownabbey this afternoon.
Linfield manager David Healy was accompanied by his assistant Ross Oliver and players Gareth Deane, Niall Quinn and Rohan Ferguson.
Linfield donated money raised from the recent Windsor Park match day experience tour to help the Hospice to continue to care for young people in residence at the Newtownabbey venue.
In addition, Linfield also donated a Christmas gift of 14 fleece blankets for use by the young people in the Children’s Hospice.
Linfield FC encourages supporters to continue to support the club’s official partner charity with their vital work.
As can be seen from the image below, the Linfield personnel were interested to view the framed Linfield shirt which is on display in a prominent position within the Children’s Hospice.
The framed Children’s Hospice Linfield shirt was donated to the Hospice along with a similar Celtic one at the time of the Linfield v Celtic Champions League tie a couple of years ago.
The framed shirts are accompanied by images of David Healy presenting the framed Linfield shirt and Brendan Rogers presenting the framed Celtic shirt.
Linfield FC encourages supporters to keep the young people being cared for in the Children’s Hospice in their thoughts and prayers at this very special time of year.
