Following his attendance at the launch of the Club's Kickz project last April, White Hart Lane once again played host to the Prime Minster yesterday.The Rt. Hon. Tony Blair MP Prime Minister attended a lunch at the stadium with representatives of the Club and the NSPCC to announce that the children’s charity had been successful in its goal of raising £250 million for its FULL STOP campaign to end child cruelty.

The landmark figure was celebrated at a special event attended by His Royal Highness The Duke of York, Patron of the FULL STOP Campaign and Prime Minister Tony Blair, who both launched the appeal in 1999.

Supporters, who have helped the NSPCC throughout the appeal, packed the charity’s Maya Angelou Centre in Tottenham, North London to hear tributes from the Prime Minister and the Duke of York before the Prime Minister made the short trip to the stadium for lunch with key figures in the campaign.

Signalling his continued support in the fight against child cruelty, the Prime Minister put himself on the Be the FULL STOP map, already populated with over 600,000 names of people who are taking action to end child cruelty.

It was the second engagement in ten days that brought the Prime Minister and Spurs together after Ledley King and Paul Robinson had attended the launch of the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation in Downing Street last week.
