JJ's half-term visit

Jermaine Jenas stopped by at the White Hart Lane Community Sports Centre on Thursday to visit a sports coaching session run by the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation in partnership with Haringey Council for local kids on their half-term holidays.

The midfielder took part in the football and multi-sports activities that had been on offer throughout the week and also sat down for a Q&A session with participants.

JJ said: "The Tottenham Hotspur Foundation is always working hard within Haringey and other areas to provide local youngsters with fun sporting activities to keep them fit and healthy.

"It's good to see the Foundation working closely with the local authority during the half-term holidays to make sure that kids have something to do and, from what I saw, the sessions look really enjoyable."

Young people aged 6 to 18 years old are invited to take part in sessions delivered by a team FA qualified coaches from the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation and coaches from other sports.

Cllr Lorna Reith, Haringey Cabinet Member for Children and Young People, said: "These coaching sessions are an excellent way for young people to keep fit and have fun, and are part of a wide range of half term activities across Haringey.

"We appreciate the support of the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation and it is great that such a well-known player took the time to speak to the young people taking part."

The Tottenham Hotspur Foundation aims to use sport and in particular football as a vehicle to create opportunities that change lives for people in our communities.

JJ is just one of many Tottenham Hotspur first team players to give up their time in support of community initiatives throughout the course of the football season.
