It's that time of year again, and as always the lads were out in force bringing some Christmas cheer to the children's wards at a number of local hospitals.

Skipper Ledley King was joined by David Bentley and Roman Pavlyuchenko at Chase Farm Hospital in Enfield, bearing gifts for young patients on the Kingfisher Ward.

Ledley said: "It's good to see the Club and its players continuing to make the effort every year to bring a little happiness into the lives of local children, many of whom will unfortunately be spending their Christmas in hospital.

"It's a pleasure and often an emotional experience for all of the lads and something we're always happy to do. It's also important for us to acknowledge the hard work of the staff at these various hospitals."

Meanwhile, vice captain Jermaine Jenas was joined by Didier Zokora on the Treasure Island Ward at Barnet General Hospital.

JJ said: "It's nice to put smiles on a few faces at Christmas time. It's a great idea of the Club's to go around the hospitals handing out presents and myself and I'm sure the rest of the lads were humbled by the reception we got on the wards."

Heurelho Gomes, Aaron Lennon and Tom Huddlestone attended the Rainbow Ward at North Middlesex University Hospital in Tottenham, while Michael Dawson was joined by Vedran Corluka and Chris Gunter at Whipps Cross in Leytonstone.

Jamie O'Hara and Gareth Bale paid a visit to the Dolphin Ward at Princess Alexandra Hospital in Harlow.
