Carl Winchester, Aiden O'Brien, Tom Bloxham and Harry Burgoyne showed off their wrapping skills as Shrewsbury Town continues to work to spread some festive cheer this Christmas.
The club has joined forces with Shropshire Council and Tuffins Supermarket to support youngsters who receive free school meals over the festive period.
The Holiday, Activity and Food Programme (HAF) is in operation in both Shrewsbury and Ludlow and aims to provide children with free activites and food throughout the school break.
Continuing our partnership with Tuffins, the supermarket kindly donated a Christmas hamper to all the children that they were able to take home for their family.
And the Shrewsbury Town Foundation also asked supporters to donate gifts that the children could pick, wrap, and gift their loved ones a present.
And not only did the children pick a present - they then got help wrapping them from Carl, Aiden, Tom and Harry when they headed to Montgomery Waters Meadow yesterday.
The players then joined in playing games with the kids - which included a snowball fight in the FanZone.
Harry Burgoyne said: "It’s been really nice to help the kids and see their faces.
"You can see how much it means to them that they are going to be giving their parents or loved ones something to open on Christmas Day.
"I’m a Shropshire lad myself, I’m from Ludlow, and I think the football club has always been the centre of the whole county.
"And I think it shows that we’ve got people here all working to put smiles on the faces of kids at Christmas.
"You have got parents and families that are struggling at the minute, times are hard. And it’s just good the football club is at the centre of where the help is coming from."
Harry said he and all the players are eager to get out and help in the community.
"Any time we have got the opportunity to be a role model for someone or to set a good example, then I am willing to do it," he added.
"Whether that’s giving someone a pair of gloves on a match day – the gloves might not mean a lot to me but it might mean a lot to a young kid and it might even lead to him taking up goalkeeping!"
"It’s really big for us players to be able to give a bit back to the community."
The hamper donated by Tuffins included everything needed for a Christmas dinner minus the Turkey - with more than 40 given away.
Milly Wheeler, fundraising and partnerships manager at Shrewsbury Town Foundation, said: "The HAF (holiday, activities and food) program allows kids who get free school meals to come to Shrewsbury Town and get a free hot meal, they utilise the stadium and they have also been able to pick a present for a loved one.
