Tottenham Hotspur have donated £100,000 to their local NHS Trust, North Mid Charity, to express their gratitude to the staff of North Middlesex University Hospital for their work during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The funds were raised from fines that Spurs had issued to players for breaching COVID-19 guidelines over the festive period.

The money will be used to provide gift vouchers to the North Mid staff as a morale boost.

Daniel Levy, the Spurs chairman told the club's official website: "The club always ringfences player fine money for good causes and we can think of no better cause to donate these funds to than North Mid’s 'Thank You' initiative for staff.

"NHS staff across the country continue to make sacrifices and put themselves at risk every day to save lives and we hope this contribution will go some way towards providing the recognition that these heroes deserve.

"Although the circumstances in which we are able to provide the financial support required are regretful, we are pleased to know that we are able to contribute and look forward to working with North Mid on this fantastic initiative."

Working together

Spurs have been working closely with their local hospital throughout the pandemic.

Last year the club stadium’s dressing rooms, medical and media facilities were used to host North Mid’s Women’s Outpatient Services. More than 41,500 appointments were delivered at the stadium between April and July.

The hospital continues to use the stadium’s indoor car park as a drive-through COVID-19 testing station for its staff, their families and local residents.

Another way that Spurs are helping those in need in their community during the pandemic is a joint fund-raising initiative with their charitable Foundation and the official Supporters' Trust to support local foodbanks
