Tottenham Hotspur is delighted to announce it has extended its Official Charity Partnership with Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice for another year. The Club has supported the charity for the past two seasons and the relationship will continue throughout the 2018-19 campaign.
The partnership sees the Club help raise awareness of the charity’s ‘Hospice at Home’ service across North London, which supports children and young people with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions and helps to drive the recruitment of volunteers via high profile events and the support of First Team players.
Our players have also given an hour’s wages to help build The Ark, North and Central London’s only children’s hospice building, due to open in 2019.
Since partnering with the Club, the charity has seen a rise in the number of families being referred to their services. In 2017 the charity supported over 200 babies, children and young people who are seriously unwell in North London, and volunteers gave nearly 13,000 hours of their time for free to help support the charity.
Donna Maria-Cullen, Executive Director at Tottenham Hotspur, said: “Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice is a fantastic charity that operates on our doorstep and we are delighted to be extending our support. We shall continue to highlight Noah’s Ark’s wonderful work as they work towards completing the build of their ground-breaking new hospice building – The Ark.”
Ru Watkins, Chief Executive, Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice, said: “We would like to thank Tottenham Hotspur for their ongoing support and commitment. We are delighted to be extending our partnership for another year. It’s a fantastic time to be associated with the Club, especially as they move into their new stadium, and we move in to The Ark.”
