There were smiles aplenty at the Children’s Hospital at Westmead on Tuesday afternoon (March 27) with Bulldogs players Sam Kasiano and Kris Keating joined by promising SG Ball player and Bulldogs trainee Jaelen Feeney paying a visit to the young patients.
The players were popular visitors who came bearing Bulldogs goodies including posters as well as a special soft toy for each child. The kids also had the chance to take pictures with the NRL stars.
The Children’s Hospital at Westmead is one of Bulldogs in the Community’s six community partners, with Bulldog players visiting young patients throughout the year, bearing Bulldogs goodies and providing a temporary relief for young kids doing it tough and an added bonus for the staff and volunteers working at the hospital.
The Children’s Hospital at Westmead will be showcased at this season’s round 19 fixture which will see the Bulldogs and the Parramatta Eels battle it out for the annual “Bandaged Bear Cup”. The game will be all about the hospital with more than 9,000 CHW staff and volunteers to be invited as a ‘thank you’ for all the hard work they do.
