Children had plenty to smile about when Sheffield United brought the festivities to Bluebell Wood.

Players and staff called in at the North Anston charity for their annual Christmas visit, where they chatted with families and signed autographs. 

Dave McCarthy, Operations Director, Sheffield United, said: “The players always look forward to the visit each year and this year, we are so pleased that our WSL Women’s first team players could also take part. Having visited over a number of years now, we are all too aware of the fantastic work that Bluebell Wood do and we are honoured to once again meet everyone.’’   

Gail Parkin, Community Fundraiser for Bluebell Wood in Sheffield, said: “We were really pleased to welcome Sheffield United back again this Christmas. This is an exciting time of year for our families, made even more special by these amazing visits, which help our children and young adults to make magical memories. We’d like to thank the Club for their fantastic support.”
