Norwegian fans do their bit for Tottenham

Posted on 18 August 2011  - 12:00

The Club would like to thank fans from our Norwegian Supporters club for their generous efforts in raising money for the Mayor’s Special Fund for Tottenham last weekend.

The Club would like to thank fans from our Norwegian Supporters club for their generous efforts in raising money for the Mayor’s Special Fund for Tottenham last weekend.

Many had already booked their flights and hotels ahead of our Premier League opener against Everton last Saturday before the match was postponed in the wake of recent troubles.

But instead of staying home, the Norwegian fans followed the lead of the Supporters Trust, who donated earlier this week, by organising a get-together in London that included raffling off prizes such as a signed Spurs shirt with all proceeds going into the Fund, set up last week to help raise money for local people who have been affected.

Haringey Council has received a significant number of people and businesses offering support and the Mayor’s Special Fund now provides a more direct outlet for the many offers of donations which have been made by both businesses such as the Club and individuals in the community.

And the Norwegian supporters did not stop there. On Sunday, their group went on a tour of the local area to support local businesses by buying dinner, drinks and souvenirs from their trip.

Knut Henriksen, of the Norway Supporters’ Club, said: “Tottenham is not only Tottenham Hotspur – it is the area that has given us so many great memories both inside and outside the stadium, and we did and are going to do our best to show our support to Tottenham N17 for every home game!”

Fans can continue to donate to the Mayor’s Special Fund in the following ways:

- By cheque – Payable to Mayor’s Special Fund – Tottenham Fund
Send to: London Borough of Haringey, PO Box 55235, London, N22 9DF

- Direct to the bank (either in a branch or by e-banking)
Payee: Mayor’s Special Fund - Tottenham Fund
Sort Code: 60-24-23
Account number: 90724828

- In person at the Community Assistance Centre (donations by cheque only, cash cannot be taken)
Tottenham Green Leisure Centre, Philips lane, Tottenham, N15

The fund is only expected to be in operation for a limited period and the council will ensure that the generous donations are used appropriately to meet the needs of the community.
