#EXTRAORDINARYSPURS: COMMUNITY HEALTH CHECKS - PETE'S STORY
Posted on 3 April 2017
2:12The Tottenham Hotspur Foundation is celebrating a decade of creating opportunities that change lives. The latest in a series of features looking at the Club’s extraordinary work in its community sees us meet Pete, a heavy smoker who was told by his GP that he was at risk of losing his leg unless he quit. After numerous unsuccessful attempts, his life was changed when he met Ida, the Spurs Nurse, who delivers pop-up health checks in the community, including a stop smoking clinic at the Day Mer Centre in Tottenham. Over the period of the 12 week course Pete quit smoking and has seen a dramatic improvement in his health.
