Auction raises thousands for TTT

A staggering £26,217 has been raised for the Tottenham Tribute Trust following the completion of our End of Season Online Auction on Tuesday.

Items including signed authentic match-worn player shirts, boots and training gear prompted an incredible response from fans.

The most eye-catching item on show was an Anderlecht match shirt worn by Belgian legend Enzo Scifo in the 1984 UEFA Cup Final, as donated by then Spurs manager Keith Burkinshaw.

This alone fetched an amazing £2,161!

Our current players also contributed to this remarkable achievement, with our Player of the Year, Michael Dawson, providing a pair of boots he wore in a match this season that went for £1,210.

The Tottenham Tribute Trust is an organisation dedicated to serving the needs of former Spurs stars who find themselves in a situation that compromises their quality of life. It is an organisation that reaches out to members of the Spurs family who are fighting hard times either financially, medically or both, and is dedicated to making sure that no former Spurs player is forgotten.

Jonathan Adelman, Chairman of the Trust, said:
"On behalf of the Trustees, I would like to reiterate our sincerest thanks to all those at the Club who were involved in collecting such a fantastic array of memorabilia for the end of season auction which has served not only to raise funds but also to highlight the work of TTT to our fans.

"We would also like to pay tribute to those present and former players and coaches who have donated items for such a worthy cause. Their generosity has enabled us to raise in excess of £25,000. Spurs fans and all supporters of the auction should know that as each of the Trustees gives their time on an entirely voluntary basis, every penny of the much needed funds raised will go directly to help those members of the Spurs family who find themselves in need.

"I would urge those fans who were unlucky enough to miss out on auction items to consider making a small contribution directly to TTT via our JustGiving pages (www.justgiving.com/thettt).

"Whilst we are all aware that times are difficult in the current economic climate, that situation makes it even more imperative that TTT is in a position to help former Spurs legends who find themselves in a position that compromises their quality of life. Together we can make sure that no former Spurs player is forgotten."

The Club would in turn like to thank fans for their generosity in helping raise such a significant total for this important cause.
