Some of Norwich City's most well known players visited the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital to meet children on the wards and hand out goody-bags.
Ivo Pinto, Nelson Oliveira, Cameron Jerome, Michael McGovern and Martin Olsson spent an afternoon visiting the Buxton Ward at the hospital as part of a series of hospital events arranged by Norwich City Football Club and the Community Sports Foundation (CSF).
