Steve's support for local fundraisers

Posted on 26 June 2004  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

Before the season came to a close a group of pupils from Edmonton County Upper School visited the Spurs training ground for a presentation.

The group of pupils lead by Peter Godfrey are a popular local rock band that has raised money for the Helen Rollason Cancer Care Appeal.

Peter and the band members made a donation to the charity after raising the money from a rock concert organised and performed by Peter and three of his band members.

Republic of Ireland international Stephen Carr was on hand to present the cheque to Mary Dillane from the Helen Rollason Cancer Care Appeal Centre.

A grand total of £550 was donated and Head teacher of Edmonton County Upper Martin Tate also visited the Spurs training ground to show support for the bands achievement.

The Helen Rollason Cancer Care Centre Appeal offers therapeutic support and development to men, women and their supporters following a cancer diagnosis.
It does this by providing counselling and complementary therapies including reflexology and aromatherapy massage. The Appeal was named after Helen Rollason MBE, the BBC sports journalist who died of cancer in 1999. She shared the vision of her oncologist, Professor Neville Davidson, that people should be treated as a whole and not just their illness.
