Thu 22 December 2022, 17:45|Tottenham Hotspur
Our legendary former skipper Ledley King today joined families from across the local area at the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation’s Winter Family Fun Day.
Attendees got into the festive spirit at the N17 Arena taking part in a range of activities including Christmas arts and crafts, a winter treasure hunt, Santa’s grotto and football and multi-sports activities.
There was also live music from DJ’s as well as a range of street food on offer provided by local businesses.
After making his special guest appearance, Club Ambassador Ledley said: “It was nice to see so many families from our community having fun and getting in the Christmas spirit today. Christmas can be a challenging time for many, so it’s great to see the Club putting on these free events and activities to help keep young people active and entertained.”
The Club has been delivering a range of free activities for local young people and families during the run up to Christmas.
Led by the Club’s Foundation staff, young people have been able to come along to Duke’s Aldridge Academy and take part in a range of football and multi-sports activities, as well as enjoying a free hot lunch.
