THST community and charity work
The aim of the campaign is to encourage open and honest conversations about mental health and encourage supporters who need them to seek out mental health support services. A central theme of #TerraceTalk is to also recognise the value that social aspects of the matchday routine provide to fans up and down the country.
The aim of the studio is to empower disadvantaged local individuals by offering a creative space for those who are recovering from mental illness. Here they can rediscover forgotten skills, develop new ones and boost their confidence within a working environment.
Tottenham Foodbank opened in November 2019 just before the global pandemic. Since March 2020, demand for the service has increased by 300 per cent. Many of the group's clients are elderly, disabled or 'newly hungry' (previously having comfortable incomes, which have been lost due to the economic impact of the pandemic).
Cycle on You Spurs
It all started on a Wednesday evening in October 2015 when three Trust Board members, Martin Cloake, Adam Bailey and I met Martin Jol in the Prince Of Wales pub, Covent Garden. I don’t think big Martin is much of a cyclist but Spurs and Ajax give him a noteworthy London and Amsterdam connection, and that is what led to his star billing in the pub. “Men United meets Martin Jol” was the launch of Prostate Cancer’s June 2016 London to Amsterdam fundraising, two-day, 150-mile bike ride. Our ever-popular former manager was on tremendous form and so I signed up for the ride.
Prostate Cancer UK
Prostate Cancer UK's top priority is funding research to stop prostate cancer killing men. We’re investing millions to find better treatments and better tests that can spot fast-growing cancers early, and could be used in a screening programme to save thousands of lives. We were the first national organisation for prostate cancer in the UK. Our aim was to improve the care and welfare of those affected by prostate cancer, increase investment in research, and raise public and political awareness of a long-neglected disease.
