YOUNGSTERS in the John Radcliffe’s Children’s Hospital have been given an extra special Easter surprise.

Players from London Welsh rugby club – accompanied by their mascot Dewi the Dragon – visited the Headington hospital on Thursday to hand out chocolate Easter eggs and spread some cheer.

Hooker Nathan Vella said: “It was really good to get out and see some of the kids in the hospital and hopefully just by popping in and giving out a few Easter eggs we put a smile on their faces.

“The dragon was getting more attention than the players, but it was good fun.

“It’s hard for those kids being stuck in hospital all day, and anything we can do to just brighten their day a little bit is good and the boys really enjoyed it.”
