Spurs Poppy Wall in support of Royal British Legion
29 October 2014|Tottenham Hotspur
In the centenary year of the beginning of the First World War, the Club has kick-started its support for the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal by erecting a Poppy Wall outside the west stand of the stadium, near Paxton Road.
The Poppy Wall is a place where fans, players, staff and visitors to the stadium are invited to make a donation to the Royal British Legion for a poppy and pin it to the Poppy Wall to remember our fallen heroes. Players Harry Kane and Eric Dier were among the first to pin a poppy to the wall earlier this week.
The Club is committed to supporting the Poppy Appeal and will undertake a number of activities in the run-up to Remembrance Day on November 11, 2014, to celebrate the bravery of the Armed Forces community.
On October 30, 2014, players Ben Davis and Andros Townsend will join a number of celebrities taking part in London Poppy Day, encouraging Londoners to give generously in support of the Poppy Appeal. Messages from the pair will be played at London underground stations including Tottenham Court Road, Tottenham Hale and Seven Sisters.
Our home game against Stoke on November 9, 2014, has been dedicated to supporting the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal. During the match, all players will wear special edition ‘Football Remembers’ poppies on shirts which will later be auctioned off to raise funds the Royal British Legion.
Poppies will be available from Poppy Sellers present at tonight’s game and we encourage all fans to make a donation and pin a poppy to the Poppy Wall.
The Royal British Legion is the UK’s leading Service charity, providing practical care, advice and support to serving members of the Armed Forces, veterans of all ages and their families.
Further details will be posted to the website about the Club’s activities in support of the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal.
