Children on brain injury rehabilitation programmes at The Children’s Trust had an extra-special Christmas treat on Tuesday (9 December) when Fulham FC’s First Team Squad popped in.

Several players visited and gave out presents to the children, organised by Fulham Football Club Foundation.

Those who visited were Lasse Vigen Christensen, Emerson Hyndman, Sean Kavanagh, Moussa Dembélé  and Seko Fofana.

Commenting on the visit Lasse Vigen Christensen said: “Visiting The Children's Trust is a highlight for us, and we feel very privileged to be here. It means so much more to me being able to visit as it’s a local good cause. Seeing the smiles on the youngsters’ faces is something that I’ll take with me.”

Paula, the mum of 18-year-old Jodie-Lee who is receiving rehabilitation following a brain injury from a car accident, said: “It’s visits like these that really helps the children when they are on their journey of rehabilitation.

“It’s truly amazing how generous the players are to come and visit.”

During a tour of the site and facilities, the players signed autographs and posed for photos with children and staff.

Every year over 40,000 children in the UK are left with a brain injury as a result of an accident or illness. The Children’s Trust offers the largest residential brain injury rehabilitation unit in the country.
