Ledley King and Paul Robinson joined the Prime Minister, the Rt. Hon Tony Blair, at Downing Street on Monday to launch the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation.Club skipper Ledley and goalkeeper Paul were at Number 10 alongside Donna Cullen, Tottenham Hotspur Foundation (THF) Trustee, James Isaac, THF social inclusion officer for people with disabilities and Trevor Duberry, THF social inclusion officer.

The Prime Minister chatted with Ledley, Paul, our coaches and participants about the Foundation as we gave a demonstration of coaching with Haringey MENCAP and kids from the Kickz programme in South Tottenham on the street outside the famous black door!

Tottenham Hotspur Foundation is an independent charity to oversee the Club’s work in the community.
• £4.5m investment from Club
• Community-based programme offering half a million sporting opportunities to young people

The excellent work of the Club’s community scheme resulted in the achievement of charitable status and the new Tottenham Hotspur Foundation will look to deliver 500,000 sporting opportunities to children and young people in and around North London - a 25% increase from the 400,000 delivered last year.

The Foundation launches with significant support and long-term funding from the Club. The total commitment is £4.5m, which represents 6% of THFC’s annual turnover.
