The Club today (Friday) made donations to its two local Foodbanks and delivered Nike kit to local young people ahead of Christmas.
Davinson Sanchez and Joe Rodon dropped off food and toiletries donated by the Club, its staff and players to North Enfield and Tottenham Foodbanks, supporting local people living in crisis.
The defenders also made stops at Somerford Grove Adventure Playground and Tottenham Community Sports Centre, both a stone’s throw from the Club’s stadium, to deliver youth football kit and footwear, donated by Nike, to young people.
Recipients of the kit included young people involved in Street Soccer, a personal development programme for homeless teenagers, supported by Tottenham Hotspur Foundation.
The deliveries form part of the Club’s wider activity within the community during the Christmas period, that has also seen Moussa Sissoko hand out food to vulnerable families, alongside The Felix Project, With Compassion and the Evening Standard’s ‘Food for London Now’ campaign.
Food from the stadium has also been provided to the Community Kitchen run by the Antwerp Arms pub in Tottenham, and toys have been donated to the Haringey Winter Toy Appeal and four local hospitals.
Colombian international Davinson said: “It is so important for us to try to help people, especially during these difficult times. It is great that we have been able to help by spending a couple of hours today but I thank the people who are volunteering at the Foodbanks and other charities as they are the ones making the difference.”
Welsh international Joe added: “It’s a pleasure for us to be involved in an initiative like this. These are tough times that we are living in – we are all people and want to help one another, so it’s great to give back. Putting a smile on other people’s faces means a lot to us.”
