Players from Super League champions St Helens made it a Merry Christmas for some sick children at Whiston Hospital.

First-team squad members Kevin Naiqama, Kyle Amor, Tommy Makinson, Theo Fages, Regan Grace, Mark Percival and Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook were all in attendance to deliver some festive cheer.

The team delivered presents to youngsters in the children’s ward whilst also raising spirits of the staff at the hospital.

Naiqama said: “The whole playing squad are here to spread some Christmas joy and although Christmas is a good time to spend with family and friends, some kids are less fortunate and I think it is a good thing that we can come in here and put a few smiles on their faces.”
