Lions stars visit Lewisham HospitalBuoyant following Friday night's excellent 1-0 victory at Brighton & HA, Millwall's first-team players including Republic of Ireland international David Forde, Alan Dunne, Danny Shittu and Scott McDonald paid their annual pre-Christmas visit to the children's wards at Lewisham Hospital on Monday afternoon.
The players handed out gifts including family tickets to The Den, scarves, calendars, posters and cuddly Zampas to youngsters in two children's wards and the children's A&E, which Millwall FC and the Save Lewisham Hospital campaign worked so strenuously together to save from closure last year.
"I think we're in a privileged position as professional football players and I don't take things for granted," said defender Danny. "A lot of people in the world are going through difficult stuff, so although it's nice to come here and speak to people, you don't want to see kids not being well.
A full gallery of photographs from today's visit will also appear on the website on Tuesday.
