Wilson and Romans Spread Some Cheer at PASIC

Nottingham Rugby stars Brent Wilson and Sean Romans spent this afternoon (11th February) at the Queen's Medical Centre in Nottingham visiting the children's ward and spending some time with some of the young patients.

Club captain Wilson and scrum half Romans have been patrons of local charity Parent's Association for Seriously Ill Children (PASIC) for two years having been moved by the work that the charity is doing to look after children with life threatening illnesses.

PASIC provides practical, financial and social support to children and young people living with cancer, their family and carers.  The two Green and White Kiwis spent a couple of hours on the ward, chatting and playing with the children and their families while dishing out presents and sweets.

Wilson commented, "It was great to be able to find some time to come and pay PASIC another visit and see how they're getting on.  They seem to be developing and building all the time with a new website being launched and more supporters coming on board.

"Even being a father myself, I can't imagine what the kids and their families must go through at times like this.  The support PASIC provides takes some of the strain off everyone's shoulders and allows them to focus on getting better.  It's remarkable what they do and I'm very proud to be able to lend my support in any way I can."

The two players got particularly involved in an electronic game of chess with a young boy, Conall Allsebrook, who was determined to beat the two visitors.

Romans said, "Conall was certainly up for the game and he's a good little player!  Seriously though, it was nice just to sit there and do normal things with someone who is experiencing a very challenging time in their life.

"Being involved with PASIC is something that means a lot to me personally and I'm very proud to be associated with such a great cause.  There was one young girl in for an outpatient visit today who we'd seen when we first got involved a couple of years ago.  She was full of energy and looked to be loving life and that was great to see.  That's the effect PASIC can have."

Brent and Sean will be back in action for Nottingham Rugby on Sunday 16th February when Bristol are the visitors to Meadow Lane in the Greene King IPA Championship.  Tickets are available by calling the Nottingham Rugby office on 0115 9070070.

PASIC will be in attendance at the game and will be hoping to raise funds to continue their work.
