Back in May the Club launched the 'Spurs in South Africa' themed World Cup t-shirt sold in stores and online with profits going to the Club's global charity partner, SOS Children's Villages.

With over 1,500 t-shirts sold approximately £7800 has been raised for the orphan charity and there's still a chance to help.

There are only a small amount of the limited print t-shirt remaining in stock, so you can still get your hands on one and in doing so help raise funds for the charity - buy your t-shirt online here...

The Club has had a long-term relationship with SOS Children in South Africa having built an orphan house in Rustenburg, which Michael Dawson visited during his time with England at the World Cup.

It was a day Daws would never forget having had a chance to see how the funds are spent and to also meet with the child he sponsors. "It was an unbelievable afternoon for me, especially to go and meet Aubrey, he was a great little lad and a good little footballer as well.

"It was great to actually go there, see where the lads' fine money went and see where we've helped as individual players and the club as a whole.

"They are all orphans and it's scary to think what they've been through. The SOS Village is their new life. They are well looked after and they are happy."
