The St George Illawarra Dragons have helped to kick-off the St George Hospital's winter appeal by delivering a donation this week.

Dragons trio James Graham, Darren Nicholls and Joe Lovodua, as well as Women's Premiership player and Dragons Community's Kezie Apps spent time with patients in the Children's Ward at St George Hospital.

The funds raised from the Westfund Charity Shield earlier this year have helped kick-off the hospital's winter appeal. The money raised in this appeal will go towards a new Cytotoxic Drug Safety Cabinet, which will be used by St George Hospital's Cancer Care Centre.

This visit was part of three hospital visits the Dragons have conducted so far this year, including Wollongong Hospital earlier this month and Mudgee Hospital in March.
