+Kith and Kids Charity Support

Posted on 26 January 2005  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

As part of our ongoing commitment to the local community, the Club have nominated the Queens Golden Jubilee Award winning charity Kith and Kids, as our local charity for 2005.

Kith and Kids has, over the past 35 years, supported children and young adults with learning disabilities and is based off White Hart Lane in Tottenham.

We are delighted to be working with such important organisation in our local community. Kith and Kids do some outstanding work empowering families living with disability and we look forward to working with them.

Marjolein de Vires, Kith and Kids Director, said: "Tottenham Hotspur have done some remarkable community development work in the past and to be supported by them is a very welcoming development at Kith and Kids. Moreover it is our local football club and some of our members are fans and are really excited about this association."

To mark the start of the relationship between Tottenham Hotspur and Kith and Kids, our goalkeeper Marton Fulop, attended an exclusive Tottenham Hotspur Community scheme football skills workshop for young adults with learning disabilities.

The workshop was part of the 97th Social Development Project launched by the charity this Christmas. Kith and Kids has pioneered this project model, which aims to enhance young disabled people's confidence, self-esteem and develop their daily living and social skills.
