The project aims to support people in Newham who wouldn’t be able to afford Christmas treats.

The players - Winston Reid, Declan Rice, Sam Byram and Chicharito - helped the team to serve a hot meal to families on a day that also saw them enjoy a performance of the venue’s Christmas performance, The Ramshackle House.

Stratford Circus Arts Centre director Tania Wilmer said: “We’d like to thank West Ham United for making this an extra special day for these families.

“A warm meal and a beautiful family show for £1 gives children a great Christmas experience at a time that can be challenging for many families.”

Chicharito added: “The scheme deserves huge recognition for the sheer amount of disadvantaged families it helps every year.”
