Video: #ChristmasPresence fair spreads festive cheer

Bristol Sport Foundation's #ChristmasPresence festival at Monica Wills House retirement community was supported by athletes from each of the Bristol Sport clubs on Tuesday, December 5th.

Bristol City's Jamie Paterson, Josh Brownhill and Matty Taylor; and Bristol Rugby's Luke Morahan, Ian Madigan, Jack Wallace and Rhodri Williams, joined Mike Vigor and Jordan Davis from Bristol Flyers; Sophie Baggeley, Millie Turner and Chloe Arthur from Bristol City Women; and Kim Oliver and Amy Meachin from Bristol Ladies Rugby, for the event at Bedminster's St Monica Trust site.

The festival saw the players deliver Christmas cards – designed by pupils on the Foundation’s Spectrum Project - to the home’s residents, before taking part in a range of light physical activities, including Tai Chi, Boccia and board games.

A school choir from Victoria Park Primary sang carols, while a mince pie workshop ensured no one went hungry, as the Foundation teamed up with the Bristol Sport clubs and the local community to spread some festive cheer and help tackle a significant issue.
