Peter Mac patients were thrilled to receive a visit from Carlton footy players over the weekend.

Carlton Captain Patrick Cripps and team mates Marc Murphy, Matthew Kruezer, Lachie Plowman, Jack Newnes, Zac Fisher and Ed Curnow visited patients on wards 3A, 5A and 6A on Saturday. 

The players spent lots of time chatting with patients about their lives and the upcoming footy season. 

Patient Darren, a loyal Carlton supporter, was ecstatic to meet Cripps and Plowman and get their autographs which he will add to his collection of other famous Carlton names Alex Jesalenko and Bruce Duoll. 

A big thank you to the Carlton Football Club who were incredibly generous with their time and showed great compassion for our patients.
