Gary Bowyer and his City players spread festive cheer by taking part in their annual festive hospital visit. 

Players visited various wards at both the Bradford Royal Infirmary and St. Luke's Hospitals, handing out Christmas gifts to the less fortunate. 

At the BRI, Bowyer and members of his first-team squad visited young patients in the children's ward, accident and emergency children's ward and the day care ward. 

At St. Luke's, meanwhile, players appeared in both the elderly ward and children's outpatients ward. 

In addition to gifts which had been kindly donated by City supporters, players also gifted chocolates and treats to the nurses working on the wards. 

The Bantams' director of communications, Ryan Sparks, said: "It was great take trips down to both hospitals for our annual Christmas visit. 

"Seeing the faces of patients in the wards being presented with their gifts was very rewarding. 

"It was important Gary and his players - as local role-models - were able to take some time out to visit the less fortunate and the people who work so hard, in the hospitals. 

"It was one of our many ways in which we aim to give back to community and, in the end, a fun day was enjoyed by all."

The club would like to to thank all the supporters who donated gifts, along with Avec, Friends of Bradford City and stall holders at our recent inuagural Covered Christmas Market - in association with Bingley Bantams.
