It has become a tradition that, every year, One Touch link up with Peterborough City Hospital to drop off sacks of donated presents. It was a tradition that began after Glenn’s own daughter was treated at the hospital.

This year, to put a smile on the faces of those facing spending Chsristmas in hospital on the Amazon Children’s Ward and other wards, One Touch, along with their 16+ Football Academy, dropped off over 80 gifts to be distributed among those on the wawrd on Monday (December 23).

Glenn said: “It is something we have done every year since having my own little girl who was treated in PCH, it’s a tough time for everyone certainly children at this time who are in their so we hope our gifts were able to put a little smile on children’s and families faces.”
