The Club will be celebrating its Official Charity Partnership with Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice at Sunday’s historic Women’s north London derby at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Noah’s Ark provides support for babies, children and young people with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions and their families across north and central London, and recently moved into their incredible new hospice building, The Ark.
Ahead of the match, volunteers from the charity will be holding a collection throughout the stadium using contactless payment devices for those wishing to make a donation to this fantastic cause.
Fans are also able to make a voluntary £1 donation to the charity on top of any purchases made in our Spurs Shop at the Tottenham Experience. Remember, we are offering a 10 per cent discount in store for all match attenders on the day - please give generously if you are able to do so.
Prior to kick-off, Queenie Dayrit - a young Spurs fan benefitting from Noah’s Ark’s sibling and family services - will walk out with the teams. Queenie, who has received support from the charity since 2017, is especially excited to meet her favourite player, Rianna Dean.
Noah’s Ark mascots, Henry and Harriet, will also be accompanying our very own Chirpy and Lily for photo opportunities with young fans on our concourses – one of a number of activations running throughout the day for the whole family to enjoy.
Help bring The Ark to life
Spurs Women captain, Jenna Schillaci, recently attended the opening of The Ark – the charity’s new children’s hospice building for north and central London and Hertsmere – alongside Men’s captain, Hugo Lloris.
The Ark offers a range of children’s palliative care services including a sensory room, sensory garden, drop-in facility for families to come and meet, overnight stays for children and families and after death care. The building, which is shaped like a butterfly, has been developed on a nature reserve in Barnet and is designed to create a home-like environment rather than feeling like a hospital.
