The group joined in with some Christmas card crafts before handing out goody bags while spending time with the children and staff.

On behalf of the squad, who had all donated, Joe Thomson was delighted to hand over a cheque to the staff. The afternoon was rounded off with a tour of Rachel House, finding out about all the hard work that goes on behind the scenes that is required to make the operation happen.

Alison Blair, Activities Coordinator at Rachel House, said: “It was lovely to have the Dunfermline Athletic players in for a festive visit, to enjoy a Christmas card making session with some of the children and get to know more about Rachel House. A huge thanks to them for the generous donation and goodies. We hope to have them back for a kick about next spring. Long may their winning streak continue!”
