Adam Smith presented Certificates of Recognition to volunteers at the HAVCO Celebrating Volunteering in Haringey ceremony this week.

The event took place at the Haringey Irish Culture & Community Centre on Pretoria Road, Tottenham, to recognise the achievements of hundreds working in the borough's voluntary sector.

Smith, 17, is a member of our blossoming Under-18 side and his performance have been rewarded with involvement in the First Team squad during the current season.

He said: "It was a pleasure for me to meet the recipients of these certificates for all their hard work in the community. The Club has a very active role to play in Haringey and me being present at this ceremony to recognise the achievements of local people is just part of that."

African Care Services; African Caribbean Leadership Council; Back To Earth Projects; Casa de la Salud Hispano Americana; Haringey Citizens Advice Bureau; Haringey Irish Pensioners Group; HAVCO & Haringey Volunteer Centre; Home-Start Haringey; Haringey Community & Police Consultative Group; Innovative Vision Organisation; Kith & Kids; Off Road Academy; Older & Bolder Forum; Pyramid Health & Social Care (PHASCA); Polar Bear Community; Polish & East European Christian Centre; Retirement Care Foundation; Sixty Plus in Haringey; Retirement Care Foundation; The Selby Trust; Victim Support Haringey; Woodside Day Centre.

Adam is just one of many of our players to give up their time to support local events, initiatives, and good causes throughout the football season.
