Tranmere Rovers’ first-team players Carl Spellman, Bailey Thompson and Bayleigh Passant visited Maggie’s Cancer Charity, which is based at Clatterbridge Cancer Centre, on Monday afternoon.
As a part of the Club’s community Christmas visits around the Wirral, the players spoke to patients and staff, and also handed out gifts.
Maggie’s is a registered charity with 20 centres throughout England and Scotland, providing free practical, emotional and social support to those living with cancer, and their family and friends.
Located in NHS Hospitals, Maggie’s centres operate support to people who need it, where patients can talk to one another about their different experiences.
The first Maggie’s centre opened in Edinburgh in 1996, and it was announced that a centre would be located at Clatterbridge on the Wirral in 2018.
Maggie’s staff and patients came along to Rovers’ Campus training ground not long ago to meet manager Micky Mellon and the first-team.
The whole squad have also worn shirts in support of the local charity during their training sessions at The Campus
Commenting on the visit to Maggie’s at Clatterbridge, First Team player Carl Spellman said: “Visits like this are really important, interacting with the community and talking to the people who work so hard.
"The people here are so positive and happy. It is great that they have this space to come and speak to people and share their issues with eachother"
TRIC Development Manager Emma Palios said: "As Wirral's Family Club, we are proud to support Maggie's Cancer Charity as part of our ongoing Christmas engagement throughout Wirral.
"We visited Maggie's along with some first team players to spread some festive cheer and joy to those who have been affected by cancer and we hope that we have helped in a positive way.
