Special day for SOS Children

Posted on 24 July 2011  - 12:00

We were delighted to welcome children from the SOS Village in Rustenburg to Coca-Cola Park for Saturday’s Vodacom Challenge Final against the Orlando Pirates.

We were delighted to welcome children from the SOS Village in Rustenburg to Coca-Cola Park for Saturday’s Vodacom Challenge Final against the Orlando Pirates.

And it was great to see them showed their support by wearing the colours of the Club that has become a massive part of their lives over the past four years.

It was in 2007 that Tottenham Hotspur established an official charity partnership with SOS Children, the world’s largest orphan charity.

The charity provides more than 70,000 children with a new home, mother and family for life in 518 unique Children's Villages around the world. A further one million families are supported by community outreach programmes.

SOS Children's main role is to help children whose parents are not there for them: AIDS orphans, street children, child soldiers and children orphaned by war, poverty, illness or natural disaster.

As part of the relationship, the Club has financed the construction of the Tottenham Hotspur orphan house in Rustenburg, which is uniquely funded by monies received from players' fines.

And since 2010, all members of the First Team playing squad have each sponsored an orphan in an SOS Village around the world.

We hope all the children and SOS mothers in attendance at Coca-Cola Park had a day to remember and enjoyed our 3-0 win!
