Three of the students at Waverley School are in the care of North London’s only hospice-at-home service for children with life-threatening and life-limiting conditions. Noah’s Ark provides clinical, emotional and practical care and support to these children, with a central aim of enabling them to live life as fully as possible.
The partnership sees the Club help raise awareness of the work of the charity and drive the recruitment of volunteers via high profile events and the support of the First Team players like Kyle.
The England international full-back joined Noah’s Ark staff at Waverley to take part in a specially adapted football session set up for the children.
Kyle commented: “It was inspiring to speak to the Noah’s Ark staff and hear about the amazing work they put in on a daily basis to provide support for these children. I’ve loved seeing the smiles on their faces and the reaction of the families today as we’ve raised awareness for a worthy cause."
Kyle’s visit was one of the many ‘Precious Moments’ that Noah’s Ark aims to provide for its children and families and Noah’s Ark will be raising money for their appeal at the home game against Burnley, with help from Sarum Hall School choir.

The choir, who recently starred in a Noah’s Ark Precious Moments concert, will be performing carols around the stadium before kick-off where collection buckets can also be found, before watching the game from a box provided by AIA.
