Inverness Caledonian Thistle Football Club was delighted to visit and deliver presents to the Raigmore Hospital Children’s Unit, which is supported by the Archie Foundation. 

Manager Duncan Ferguson was joined by Billy Mckay, Harry Lodovica, David Wotherspoon, Lewis Nicolson, Charlie Gilmour, Mark Ridgers and Cillian Sheridan on the visit on Thursday afternoon. 

Duncan and the boys delivered Caley Thistle merchandise donated by the club and presents donated by the Caley Thistle players to the kids in the Children’s Unit.  They also took time to chat to all the children, parents and staff ahead of Christmas.

The club would like to thank the Archie Foundation for helping make this visit possible.

Zoe Grant, regional fundraising officer at The Archie Foundation, said: “The children’s faces lit up when they spotted Duncan Ferguson and the players walking on to the ward. It’s fair to say it wasn’t only the children who were made up to see them!  

“This kind of support is invaluable. It gives a real boost to the children, their families and also to the staff. Donating time, services or money to The Archie Foundation is an opportunity for people, businesses and organisations to make a difference to children who find themselves in hospital.”
