The entire NRL squad, Head Coach John Morris and a handful of Sharks Mermaids spent the day on Wednesday spreading some joy and a special brand of Sharks Christmas spirit.
Splitting up into their various groups, the Sharks visited the Sutherland and Sydney Children’s Hospitals, Ronald McDonald House and Sylvanvale delivering toys and playing games with the children currently within these services.
At Randwick at the Sydney Children’s Hospital, Shaun Johnson, Matt Moylan, Bronson Xerri and their group even took to the stage in the Starlight Room to help deliver a unique rendition of the popular Baby Shark song.
Another group, led by coach Morris, Chad Townsend and Jack Williams, dropped into Civic Disability to greet the workers, pose for photographs and sign autographs, with the boys also chipping in and doing a little bit of work to ease the load during the busy Christmas period.
In Jannali, Wade Graham and Josh Morris were amongst those to enjoy a morning tea at Sutherland Shire Family Services, the Sharks delivering hampers arranged and provided by Woolooware Bay and spending time with the clients and staff members.
The Christmas Blitz is an ongoing initiative, the Sharks NRL team taking part each year leading into Christmas, with the club and Sharks Have Heart enjoying great relationships with all the venues and were happy to support them during this festive season.
The toys handed out to the children at Sutherland, Randwick and at Sylvanvale were generously donated by the Sharks Ladies Golf Club and the Sharks also thank Westfield for supplying Santa at the Sutherland Hospital visit and Woolooware Bay for their continued support of Sharks Have Heart and the various community programs with which they are associated.
