Stags make Easter visit to local hospice

16 April 2019

Our players have helped spread Easter joy by delivering chocolate eggs to patients at John Eastwood Hospice in Mansfield.

First team players, along with members from the Stags’ under 21s squad, visited patients and their families in an hour-long stay.

Stags’ director Steve Middleton, who visited the hospice with the players, said: “As a community club, we endeavour to help as many different people within our area as we possibly can.

“The players delivered Easter eggs to patients, and spent time chatting with them and their families. We hope our short stay helped those who we visited.”

Diane Humphreys, hospice manager, said: “John Eastwood hospice is a great part of the community, with volunteers of all ages and all walks of life. Mansfield Town Football Club is a very big part of the community and that’s what a visit like this is about, bringing the community together.

“A visit such as this is a great boost to our patients, who are sadly coming to the end of their lives. It can make them feel valued and have self-worth, even at this time of their lives.”
