The event is organised by Fulham Football Club Foundation and the players who dropped by this year were: Lasse Vigen Christensen, Emerson Hyndman, Sean Kavanagh, Moussa Dembélé and Seko Fofana. Commenting on the visit Lasse Vigen Christensen said: “This visit is a highlight for us, and we feel very privileged to be here. “It’s given me a real insight into this type of injury, talking to the children and hearing their stories.” Paula, the mum of 18-year-old Jodie-Lee who is receiving rehabilitation following a brain injury from a car accident, said: “It’s visits like these that really helps the children when they are on their journey of rehabilitation. “It’s truly amazing how generous the players are to come and visit.” During a tour of the site and facilities, the players signed autographs and posed for photos with children and staff.
