UFC fighter Judo Jimmy Wallhead dropped in to the hospice to meet some of the young people.

For 18-year-old Murad Hussain, it was the chance to meet one of his heroes. Murad, who has a rare, genetically inherited neuromuscular condition known as Spinal Muscular Atrophy, has been visiting Rainbows for many years.

He said: “I got in to UFC by playing it on the computer and then I started watching the fights and I got hooked. I love it. It is really quite special that Jimmy has come in to see us and spend time with us.”[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
