Tottenham Hotspur celebrate Weeks of Action 2015
Tottenham Hotspur celebrated Level Playing Field’s Weeks of Action in style by dedicating a whole week to promoting access and inclusion for their disabled fans and wider disabled community.
During the week the club championed a number of the club's disability projects within the local community. This included a visit from Belgium international stars Mousa Dembele and Jan Vertonghen to the Learning Disability Centre of Excellence at Barnet & Southgate College. The players were given a tour of the facilities and took part in a range of activities with the students.
Concluding Tottenham’s support for this year’s campaign they dedicated their home fixture against Manchester City to supporting LPF and the message of access and inclusion. On the day ex Spurs defender Gary Mabbutt joined Tottenham Disabled Supporters Association Chairman Laurence Cornwall on the pitch at half time to talk about the Weeks of Action. Mabbutt, now a patron of Diabetes UK, spoke passionately about the power of sport in tackling discrimination and promoting equality which was warmly received by the fans.
The club also screened the work they do in partnership with disabled people in the local community on the stadium’s big screens, as well as featuring LPF in the matchday programme.
