Wayne Routledge spent Friday afternoon visiting patients at St Clare Hospice in Hastingwood, Essex.

The Club have recently expressed their support for the work of the Hospice and will be working with the charity in helping raise its profile and assisting in raising vital funds.

Part of this process was Wayne’s visit, which was in line with our commitment to Premier League community initiative Creating Chances. As a result of this programme, St Clare will receive a £2,000 donation.

During his time at the Hospice, the 22-year-old winger sat down and spoke with patients, as well as impressing some visitors from a local school with his football skills.

Wayne said: “It was a humbling experience to meet the patients, and I think the staff are doing a great job to make the place such a warm environment for everyone.

“This is why it’s important for players like myself to help raise awareness for places like St Clare because, if a day like today can help raise funds, the good work can continue.

“It’s pleasing to know that Spurs support good causes like this and us players are always happy to help out.”
