Spurs Manager pays a visit to The Ark

26 APRIL 2019

PRESS RELEASE: Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice had a visit this week from Tottenham Hotspur Manager Mauricio Pochettino and Assistant Manager Jesus Perez to see how we're getting on with building The Ark.


Tomorrow, Tottenham Hotspur will play West Ham United in a match that will be dedicated to raising funds for Noah's Ark Children's Hospice - Tottenham Hotspur's Official Charity Partner. The players will warm-up in special edition T-shirts and Spurs' much-loved mascots Chirpy and Lily will be joined on the pitch by our very mascots, Henry and Harriet. Our volunteers will be also situated around the stadium with our brand new high-tech contactless devices.

Prior to the game, Mauricio and Jesus visited the Barnet site and met with Ru and Alison, our Chief Executive and Director of Income Generation, who gave them a tour of The Ark. Afterwards, they both spent time with Aisha and her family who are supported by Noah’s Ark and will use the new hospice building when it’s complete.

Mauricio said: "It’s been a pleasure visiting The Ark and seeing how the hospice is progressing. I have been really impressed with the facility and I am sure that once it is open, it will be a fantastic space for families in North London to get the help they require. We are very proud of our partnership with Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice, and I wish them the best of luck as they move into their new home."

Alison said: "It was a delight to welcome Mauricio and Jesus to The Ark and show them what a difference the building will make to the seriously unwell babies, children and young people and their families supported by Noah's Ark Children's Hospice. The support we've had from Tottenham Hotspur and the Spurs fans has been incredible and we are proud to be the Official Charity Partner of the Club. Now that Spurs has moved in their new home, we are looking forward them helping us move into ours."
