South Africa: Nashua Mobile Cape Cobras Take Time Out for Red Cross War Memorial Children's Hospital

The Nashua Mobile Cape Cobras took time out from their busy cricket schedules to visit various wards at the Red Cross War Memorial Children's Hospital on Tuesday 18 December.

These annual visits started in the early 2000's and now, over a decade on, remain close to the hearts of the Cape Cobras players. Paul Adams as a young cricketer joined his team on these visits, and now continues this tradition as coach of the Nashua Mobile Cape Cobras.

The chosen charity of the Nashua Mobile Cape Cobras is the Children's Hospital Trust, which fundraises for the Hospital and Paediatric Healthcare in the Western Cape. The objective of the visit is to bring excitement to the hospital wards, where patients spend weeks and sometimes months with their concerned parents at their bedsides.

The players interacted with the little patients and hand out party packs. A special of thanks to Woolworths Bayside Mall for the donation of the party packs.
