Bristol Rugby Visit Bristol Children's Hospital

Bristol Rugby squad members visited Bristol Children's Hospital and met young patients on Tuesday.

Members of the squad handed out Christmas gifts to patients, as well as meeting staff and parents.

The annual trip saw Tusi Pisi, Marc Jones, Will Cliff, Adrian Jarvis, Mark Sorenson and James Hall visit a number of wards at the Royal Hospital For Children on Upper Maudlin St to hand out some Bristol Rugby themed Christmas gifts to some of the children unfortunate enough to be spending Christmas in hospital.

Marc Jones told bristolrugby.co.uk: "It's such an important thing for us to take part in every year.

"It's easy to forget when you're surrounded with not only the hustle and bustle of Christmas but also the training and playing schedule, that there are people who are perhaps less fortunate than ourselves and it's right we give something back to the community.

"We met some incredible and inspiring young people today and hope we have bought a smile to their faces."
