It was a new lease of life for children admitted at the Colonial War Memorial Hospital when they were visited by the Vodafone Fiji 7s training squad yesterday.

Team co-manager Paula Biu said the visit was part of their community outreach programme.

“For us it’s always good that we keep in touch with the general public, because they are the main supporters of the team, and also this is something that we want to give back to them,” Biu said.

“We have decided to come and visit the hospital especially to our young ones because I think they are our strongest supporters”

Coach Ben Ryan said the team can put a smile on everyone’s face.

“And perhaps everyone here who are fighting their battles and their lives so we give these children an opportunity to smile a little bit more and that will probably light up their faces for our performances for the next tournament.”

Ryan will name his 12-man squad for the next leg of the 2014/15 HSBC World Sevens Series on Friday.
