Poppy Wall returns at the Lane

Posted on 28 October 2015  - 17:45

Following a tremendous response 12 months ago, the Club has re-erected its Poppy Wall at White Hart Lane for fans to pay their respects and show their support for the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal.

The Poppy Wall is a place where fans, players, staff and visitors to the stadium are invited to make a donation to the Royal British Legion for a poppy and pin it to the Poppy Wall to remember our fallen heroes.

Re-unveiled today (Wednesday, October 28) by Dele Alli, Danny Rose and Kieran Trippier, the Wall will be situated on Bill Nicholson Way at next Monday’s match with Aston Villa and at next Thursday’s match with Anderlecht.

The trio were joined by Club staff, local schoolchildren and members of the local Royal British Legion to add to the poppies already placed on the wall in 2014.

Danny said: “It is a fantastic idea and a great way for fans to pay their respects and perhaps remember a loved one who has lost their life in conflict.

“The Club is well known for the support it shows the Poppy Appeal and how we mark Remembrance, and we encourage our fans to come and visit the Wall if they get a chance before or after the game.”

The Villa match has been dedicated to supporting the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal. Poppies will be available from Poppy Sellers present at the game and we encourage all fans to make a donation and pin a poppy to the Wall.

The Royal British Legion is the UK’s leading Service charity, providing practical care, advice and support to serving members of the Armed Forces, veterans of all ages and their families.
