Sydney FC brought cheer to patients at the Sydney Children’s Hospital, Randwick on Wednesday as Jacques Faty and Mickael Tavares toured the wards.
In conjunction with their visit, Tavares and Faty presented a cheque to Sydney Children’s Hospital Foundation for $7,300 from funds raised through the auctioning of Sydney FC’s exclusive one-off Sydney Children’s Hospital Foundation charity third strips.
Marc Janko’s match-worn jersey from the Sky Blues 4-2 victory over the Central Coast Mariners, in which he scored two goals, fetched $815 while the second most popular jersey was fellow striker Shane Smeltz’s which attracted a top bid of $355.
Following the presentation the players participated in a live game of snakes and ladders in the Starlight Room that was broadcast around the whole Hospital.
Tavares said it was great to be able to brighten the children’s days with their visit as he said it brought everything into perspective.
“I realise how lucky we are,” he said.
“It was great to bring our support to those at the Hospital. God bless them.”
Sydney FC would like to thank all their Members and fans who placed bids on Sydney Children’s Hospital Foundation charity third strips.
