“For us, sending well wishes and packing gifts for the hospitals, putting smiles on people’s faces is really important.”

While Rashford said: “It’s obviously something that as a team we enjoy doing, supporting the children and the staff at the hospitals.

“To put a smile on young people’s faces and seeing them happy gives us a massive boost over Christmas.”

Manchester United Women head coach Marc Skinner was joined by captain Katie Zelem plus the likes of Alessia Russo and Millie Turner for the special visits.

Zelem said: “It’s been amazing for us to put a smile on the children’s faces; it’s something that we really look forward to every year, that we can come and spread our energy and love to the children who hopefully will be getting better soon.

“We know how big of a club Manchester United is, but at the heart of it is always the community.”
