Matt Hankin and Baden Kerr spent an afternoon taking photos, signing autographs and talking to sick children and elderly patients and their families in several wards at the hospital in Isleworth , on Thursday December 3.
They joined in with Singing for the Brain part of the Alzheimer’s Society programme which uses singing to bring people together.
Following their visit, Matt and Baden said: “We really enjoyed our afternoon at West Mid. It’s been great to meet patients and staff, to give something back and to trade smiles.
“Sometimes we don’t realise what a visit like this means and it’s been really nice to brighten up their day, even just a bit.”
Marisa Rodriguez, Crane Ward manager, said: “We are very grateful Matt and Baden came to visit our ward.
“One patient had a very long chat about rugby – it has brought back fond memories for patients and put smiles on their faces.
“This kind of gesture goes a long way and makes a huge difference, not only for patients but also for the staff.”
