A former footballer visited a Havering support group last month.

Julian Dicks, who played for West Ham and Liverpool, met members of Saint Francis Hospice’s Memories and Moments group on December 18.

The group helps patients and carers by giving them an opportunity to reminisce about happy times.

Dicks, a defender who played more than 300 competitive games for West Ham and was named the “Terminator” for his style of play, said: “I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to Saint Francis Hospice to meet the patients and their carers.

“The hospice does an amazing job for the local community and it’s a pleasure to support them.”

Memories and Moments was formed by Briony Townshend and Sandy Lawless, two social workers at the hospice, after they found evidence that patients and carers could benefit from sharing memories.
