12 Days of Christmas: Hammers stars visit youngsters at Newham University Hospital

West Ham United’s first team players took a break from their busy festive schedule to spread the Christmas cheer at a local hospital.

Michail Antonio, Arthur Masuaku, Diafra Sakho, Toni Martinez and Sam Byram visited the children’s Rainbow Centre at Newham University Hospital to meet youngsters and hand over claret and blue gifts.

It continues the Club’s yearly tradition of visiting the hospital just before Christmas begins and the visit, once again, brought smiles to faces of the young children currently under the care of doctors and nurses.

The 12 Days of Christmas kicked off last week with our Claret Crackers challenge between Marko Arnautovic and Sam Byram. Click here to watch the video.

Our second day of the 12 Days of Christmas saw Mark Noble, Winston Reid, James Collins, Andy Carroll, Aaron Cresswell and manager David Moyes spread cheer to families attending the Richard House Children's Hospice's Christmas party at London. Click here to watch.

The third day saw our U23s and Academy players take part in a festive Me or Him challenge. You can watch the full video here.

Day four pitted Chicharito and Pablo Zabaleta together in another Claret Crackers video, while day five had our Ladies team  competing in a festive keepie-uppies challenge.

Pablo Zabaleta was among the Hammers who surprised a group of local schoolchildren by photobombing their London Stadium tour on day six.

Day seven saw Diafra Sakho take on Jose Fonte in our latest Claret Crackers video.
