When Spurs played at Chelsea on 3 December, we were inundated with messages from fans who had experienced major problems getting into Stamford Bridge that night. By the time the match kicked off at 7.45pm, 982 Spurs fans were still outside the stadium, with many missing up to 20 minutes of the game in unacceptable conditions.
To mark the 30th Anniversary of the Bradford Stadium fire, THST will be organising a bucket collection before the game on Sunday, collecting money for the Bradford Burns Unit.
On 11 May 1985, 56 fans lost their lives and hundreds of supporters were injured as a result of a fire at Valley Parade. Tottenham Hotspur is making a donation to the Burns Unit and the Premier League will be matching funds raised by fans collecting before the game outside White Hart Lane.
If any supporters would be able to give up a couple of hours of their time, between 13.45 and 15:45, to help us by standing outside turnstiles, on Tottenham Square, inside the Megastore entrance or the West Stand car park with buckets, we would be extremely grateful.
If you are able to help, please contact us on info@THSTOfficial.com so we can arrange a meet on Sunday, where we will be able to give you instructions for the collection.
To those fans unable to help collect, please look out for the buckets and contribute however you can to this worthy cause.

To mark the 30th anniversary of the Bradford City Fire Disaster in which 56 people lost their lives, there will be a one minute silence before every game played this weekend, and fan organisations will be running collections for the Bradford Burns Unit.
We hope to be able to organise a bucket collection at our next home game. We are also asking fans to donate via the BCFC Burns Unit Appeal JustGiving page here https://www.justgiving.com/bcfcburnsunitappeal/
THST’s next Members' Meeting will take place at White Hart Lane stadium on Wednesday 20th May from 6.30pm.
As well as an open floor discussion with THST Board members, we have secured a guest speaker for this event. THFC’s Safety Officer, Sue Tilling, has agreed to speak and take questions around all aspects of match day stewarding and policing.

SD London Meeting – 28 March
The Boards of THST and THFC met on Monday night to discuss the agenda we posted earlier this week. The minutes of that meeting, as agreed by both Boards, can be read here. We’d like to make some brief comment on what we took from that meeting – particularly as we are about to enter a new and challenging period for the Club and its fans.
Note to THST members: These minutes were compiled following the Board to Board meeting on Monday 30 March and so came ahead of the THFC announcement regarding a settlement with Archway Steel on Tuesday 31 March. That announcement obviously changes some of the scenarios outlined below and we will be making further comment on the latest news imminently. In the interests of keeping our members as fully informed as possible, we’re issuing these minutes based on the situation as it stood on Monday night.
