Canberra Raiders players Jamal Fogarty, Elijah Anderson and Matt Timoko recently visited Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) in Canberra to spread some Christmas cheer throughout the wards and in the family room of The Canberra Hospital as part of the Wrapped in Love program.

The players were on hand to deliver Raiders hats, puzzles and pairs of socks to children and their families.

They spent time talking to family members, telling stories, asking questions and learning new iPad games and playing UNO.

The Wrapped in Love program provides families with basic care packages during their time in hospital. This is a way for RMHC to spread smiles and do their bit to help brighten the day of families with ill or injured children in the hospital, whether they are there for one day or ten.

The Wrapped in Love trolley carries a mix of board games, card games, reading books, activity books, toys, dolls, Lego, play-doh, hand-knitted baby blankets and much more to provide comfort, practical support and/or a boredom-buster for children (and their carers) in the hospital wards.

Incredible volunteers offer their time to stock the Wrapped in Love trolleys, deliver the goods, and consistently check-in with sick children and their families to ensure they have everything they need.

RMHC is currently running their Christmas Appeal and also using this time as a callout for potential volunteers over the summer break. To learn more and give a helping hand visit
