Tottenham Hotspur Foundation celebrate summer of fun

Today signalled the midway point open day for the two week summer school partnership between Haringey Children and Young People's Services and Tottenham Hotspur Foundation.

The objective of the project is to provide high-quality summer holiday provision for students with disabilities from William C Harvey School and The Vale Primary Resource Base.

The Football Club's charitable body welcomed parents, carers and siblings of pupils to the open day, which featured a workshop with renowned inclusive theatre group Chickenshed.

Throughout the summer school programme a series of varied themes are implemented including music, arts and crafts, the environment, and Olympics. There is multi-sport sessions built into each day's programme which are led by the Foundation's specialist coaches.

Anna Rimington Education Manager at Tottenham Hotspur Foundation said: "Working in partnership with the borough means we can provide this valuable service to local families. The summer scheme is a great opportunity for Tottenham Hotspur Foundation coaches to work with staff from the two schools in order to provide stimulating and fun activities for the children."

Today also gave the Foundation a chance to showcase its latest disability sports programme, the Reach 2 Teach Project.

Funded by the Premier League and the Professional Footballers' Association, Reach 2 Teach encourages specific and PAN disability football groups in particular to develop as independent and sustainable community grass routes clubs, hubs and potentially charitable trusts.
