It was all smiles for the senior residents and their carers at the Imperial care home in Sliema, who were delighted to some fine football skills by members of the Ħamrun Spartans FC senior squad.
Football-fanatic residents shared their nostalgic memories of their sporting recollections, as others looked mesmerised at the talent on show, with the players showing off their keepy-uppies, ball control and pin-point passing.
Once again, the Spartans contributed to share happiness and fun among the community.
With the residence’s hall clad in red and black for the occasion, more than 50 residents flocked in for a close encounter with some of Malta’s top-footballing names, including national team players Matthew Guillaumier and Ryan Camenzuli together with Brazilian star Emerson Marcelina, one of the stalwarts of the Spartans’ now historic UEFA Conference League run earlier this season.
A few residents plucked courage to share their skills with the ball, exchanging a few passes with the squad members to the applause of their mates.
At the end of the event, the players handed out a colourful plant to all participating residents together with a signed squad jersey, while posing for the much sought-after commemorative photos and selfies.
This visit, supported by the club’s CSR arm, Ħamrun Ħanin, builds on the efforts of recent months through which the club is seeking to increase its presence in the community, particularly among the more vulnerable cohorts of society, promoting the values of inclusion, non-discrimination, diversity and healthy living.
