Teemu Tainio took part in the third annual Haringey Schools Travel Plan Celebration at White Hart Lane last week.

The Finland international was joined by Haringey Councillor Liz Santry in handing out awards to children from local schools who had taken part in a poster competition encouraging greener school travel.

A number of different workshops had been running in order to promote walking and cycling to and from school and less use of cars, and as a result helping promote the Borough’s green agenda and make a contribution towards climate change.

Teemu said: “The environment is important to everyone so I think it’s good that the local authorities are doing something to encourage young people to get involved in making a difference.”

Cllr Santry added: “It was great to have Teemu handing out the prizes, the posters were very imaginative. I think the chance of meeting a Spurs player at the end of the project gives an extra incentive to the children. The event was a success but now we need to keep building on it.”
