The Tottenham Hotspur Foundation’s work has been recognised by the Beyond Sport charity as part of their ‘Go Beyond Sport’ campaign.
The campaign aims to gain support for community projects that use sport to address problems such as youth crime and anti-social behaviour in light of recent events in the UK.
The Foundation uses sport, and in particular football, as a vehicle to create life changing opportunities for children, groups and individuals within the community. This is achieved by working with a wide range of partners including central and local government departments, schools, colleges, businesses and charitable trusts to design programmes that engage with all sections of the community.
As well as the Foundation, Beyond Sport are supporting Fight For Peace, Street League, StreetGames, and Greenhouse, all of which work towards positive futures for young people in disadvantaged communities through the power of sport.
Beyond Sport has set up a fundraising page on the JustGiving donation website - http://www.justgiving.com/teams/gobeyondsport/ -allowing people to pledge money as way of a support for the initiatives with the funds raised to be split evenly between the five projects.
You can also donate on the Foundation-specific site created by Beyond Sport, http://www.justgiving.com/BeyondSport-Spurs
