Titans players and rookies yesterday spent the afternoon putting smiles on the faces of kids at the Gold Coast University Hospital as part of the annual Christmas visit.
NRL players Brian Kelly and Ash Taylor took along a number of the squad’s rookies for the visit where they handed out presents, signed autographs and generally spread some Christmas cheer.
Kelly is extremely appreciative of the opportunity he’s been given in life and was more than happy to spend time with the kids.
“I’m so grateful for the people around me and to be able to come here today and spread some joy has been great,” Kelly said.
“Just coming to see the kids here today spreads joy and just to share it with them going into the Christmas holidays is wonderful.”
The Gold Coast University Hospital (GCUH) have always enjoyed having the Titans come in and visit but it’s the happiness it brings to the kids that means so much.
“We had the boys from the Titans in today and saw some of our patients in the Children’s Ward here at the GCUH,” GCUH Marketing Officer Zoe Armstrong said.
“We were able to share the joy with the kids who unfortunately have to be here at this time of year.
“It was great of them to hand out some presents and give some high-fives to all the kids.”
