Eels' Easter messages for sick kids
Over Easter period, the Parramatta Eels wanted to find a way to reach out to the children at Ronald McDonald House and the Children's Hospital at Westmead, in lieu of their annual Easter visit during isolation.
Our secret helpers dropped off goodie bags outside Ronald McDonald House and some Eels players sent heart felt messages for the children who will be spending Easter at the hospital and at Ronald McDonald House.
Westmead Children’s Hospital Ambassador Nathan Brown promised to visit the children when the Corona Virus pandemic eases, “You are definitely in our thoughts, shout out to the kids, families and staff involved. Hopefully when this is all over we can see you soon and come for a visit.”
Ryan Matterson, Dylan Brown and Reagan Campbell-Gillard also sent their messages of support.
“I’m wishing all the kids, their families and all the staff members a Happy Easter. I’m wishing you all a speedy recovery and hopefully see you guys soon,” said Ryan Matterson.
“Unfortunately we can’t be there to do our annual Easter visit, just wanted to give a special message to all the kids and families doing it tough at the moment,” said Reagan Campbell Gillard.
“We can’t wait to get out of isolation and see you guys. Until then, wanted to wish you a safe time and Happy Easter,” added Dylan Brown.
The Club is proud of its long-standing charity partnership of over over 20 years with both the Children's Hospital at Westmead and Ronald McDonald House.
