VIDEO: Brave young Spurs fan helps launch new charity partnership


This is truly heartwarming.

It’s not said enough, but Premier League clubs really do so much for their local communities to help those in need.

Tottenham Hotspur have gone above and beyond this week, as 8-year-old fan Luke Langton found out.

On Thursday Spurs officially launched their new charity partnership with Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice, which is North London’s only hospice-at-home service for children and young people with life-limiting and life-threatening illnesses.

As you can see in the video below, Luke was the star of yesterday’s launch as he met the players and manager Mauricio Pochettino, then was announced to the media as “Tottenham’s new signing” during Pochettino’s press conference.

Over the next two years Spurs will be raising awareness of the work of Noah’s Ark and aiming to help its recruitment of volunteers from the local community.

Here is Luke’s story as he revealed that a letter previously written by Pochettino has made him take his medicine and focus on getting better as the young Spurs fan battles leukemia.

Bravo, Spurs. Bravo.
