Former cricketer turned television personality Phil Tufnell visited The Children’s Trust on Christmas Day, to hand out gifts to children with a brain injury.
Tufnell, who is an Ambassador for the charity, spent a few hours talking to the families and playing a game of indoor table cricket with the children, some of whom have found it very difficult being away from home at this time.
Phil said: “I love coming here. The work this charity does is fantastic! I’m glad that I can help and try to make the kids day that extra bit special. That’s what Christmas is about, isn’t it? It was a really lovely morning, and I hope that all the children continue to go from strength to strength in the New Year.”
Angela Robertshaw, Head of Communications at The Children’s Trust, said: “It was wonderful to have Phil drop by on Christmas morning. We try to make the festive period as special as possible, and Phil’s visit helped us do exactly that! It was a wonderful day, and the children were delighted with their presents.”
The Children’s Trust provides specialist brain injury rehabilitation to children and young people with acquired brain injury. There is also a school at the site in Tadworth which provides residential education for children with severe learning disabilities and complex needs.
