A school choir singing for Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice, the Club’s Official Charity Partner, helped to raise an amazing £3,300 at White Hart Lane on Sunday thanks to the generosity of fans.
Sarum Hall choir spread some seasonal cheer around the stadium before kick-off against Burnley, raising money for North London’s only “Hospice at Home” service, while collections were also held around the ground by volunteers.
After performing a selection of festive favourites, the girls enjoyed the game from the comfort of the AIA box, receiving a shirt each from the sponsor as well as a goody pack from the Club.
Alison Goodman, Director of Income Generation at Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice, said: “We were blown away by the extraordinary generosity of fans on Sunday and would like to say a big thank you to everyone involved. The money raised will help us continue the great work we do in caring for young people with life-threatening and life-limiting conditions in North London and the Club’s continued support is greatly appreciated.”
A family of Spurs followers further demonstrated our fans’ appreciation for Noah’s Ark, as season ticket holder Matt Selby and his daughters took part in this year’s Santa Run in Victoria Park, helping to raise more than £1,000 for the charity. The popular annual event sees 4,000 people dress up in Santa outfits to run 5k or 10k around Victoria Park, East London. Matt’s story can be found here.
Noah’s Ark provides clinical, emotional and practical care and support to children, with a central aim of enabling them to live life as fully as possible, regardless of cognitive or sensory ability. The charity is currently raising money for the Christmas Precious Moments appeal.
