Chairman drops off new TV/DVD units to children’s ward

After seeing a plea online for support for Willow children’s ward at Darent Valley Hospital, Fleetdown UFC decided to purchase and donate three TV/DVD combi units for the ward.

Paul Hordon, chairman of the club, visited the hospital and personally delivered them to a very excited and surprised ward staff. Several of their portable units had been damaged and could not be repaired, so there were less opportunities for children on the ward to pass the time watching their favourite programmes.

The club executive committee member and vice chairman Jamie Cadden said, “As a local community club, we feel compelled to support this cause, especially as many of our club community have benefitted from this type of in hospital entertainment when recovering from football injuries or general illness.”
