Working together we aim to:

  • Reach more children and families who could benefit from our support.
  • Create memories for children who are seriously unwell and their families.
  • Increase awareness and understanding about Noah’s Ark.
  • Promote the holistic care and support that we provide for the whole family.
  • Raise vital funds for Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice.



Tottenham Hotspur are proud of the considerable work that they do off the pitch in support of charitable causes, using the power of football and the global appeal of the club to make a positive difference to the lives of people both at home and abroad.

As the local children’s hospice supporting the North London community, Tottenham Hotspur chose us to be their charity partner eight years ago – and we’ve made quite the impact since then.



Highlights include:

  • Mascot opportunities on the pitch for the children that we support.
  • Player visits to The Ark to meet children and families that we support.
  • Fundraising charity matches at the Spurs stadium.
  • Merchandise goodies for our families.

The last eight years have created not only unique, unforgettable memories for children and families but also have helped more people learn about the invaluable work that we do.



We we’re lucky to welcome Spur’s star player, James Maddison, to The Ark on Wednesday 10th April. James spent time meeting three families to listen to their stories before enthusiastically engaging in a lively kickabout in our accessible playground – our mascot Rory even put on his away kit and joined in the fun!

Our lucky Noah’s Ark mascot, Rory, has a very special away kit that he sports when we’re playing with Spurs.

Here is Rory in action on the pitch (otherwise known as our accessible playground) when James Maddison came to visit us at The Ark. Rory even saved a goal!

Follow us on social media to see what Rory is up to.



On Sunday 28th April we sported our Noah’s Ark away kit as we celebrated our charity partnership with Tottenham Hotspur at the North London Derby Day, when Spurs played against their rival, Arsenal.

Proudly sporting our blue and white away kit, we visited the stadium to raise awareness about the work of our charity and raise vital funds needed to help us to support the children who are seriously unwell and their families.

Dreams came true as Freya, who is supported by Noah’s Ark, led the team out as a mascot on the day, holding the hand of Spur’s star player, Son Heung-min.

Other match-day highlights included:

  • Rory, our mascot appearing on the pitch with Spur’s mascots Chirpy and Lily.
  • The Spurs team warming up in special Noah’s Ark training tops.
  • A pitch-side interview live on the big screen with our CEO, Sophie Andrews OBE.
  • An advert and feature in the match day programme.
  • Fans had the chance of winning a signed Tottenham Hotspur football by making an optional donation to Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice via a dedicated text service.
  • Our dedicated volunteers worked tirelessly around the stadium, spreading awareness, and raising vital funds for Noah’s Ark.

The day really was magical (even though our favourite team didn’t win). A big thank you to the Spurs team for helping to make all this possible.

“I’ve had a brilliant time meeting some of the kids and families today, kids who are struggling and families who are really strong and going through a tough moment. It’s been a really heart-warming experience, just to be able to come and put a smile on their faces.”
