Tottenham Hotspur have made deliveries of items donated by the club, staff and players to North Enfield Foodbank.

As part of its annual tradition ahead of Christmas, deliveries of non-perishable food items and toiletries were made to foodbanks in both Enfield and Haringey boroughs.

Ledley King and Michael Dawson, former players and now club ambassadors, collected items from Tottenham’s Bulls Cross training ground and delivered to North Enfield Foodbank’s base in Lumina Way, Southbury, also taking the time to chat to volunteers about their extraordinary work.

Michael said: “The club plays a massive role in its community and this time of year can be particularly hard for many people. We do our annual donations and also have a text-to-donate fundraiser running throughout the year. There’s families struggling to put food on the table so supporting our local foodbanks is so important to us as a football club.”

Ledley added: “This is something we have been doing for many years and it makes a huge difference to people – it’s something we enjoy doing. This time of year should be about families coming together and enjoy themselves, so we do whatever we can to make that happen.”

Foodbanks provide emergency food and support to people living in poverty – currently more than 14 million people in the UK.
