Tottenham Hotspur’s midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg dropped off batches of essentials at a foodbank ahead of Christmas.

The Spurs player visited Tottenham Foodbank on Monday (December 19) to make a special delivery as part of the club’s long-term support of the local foodbank.

Food parcels contained at least three days’ worth of nutritionally balanced meals to families for the Christmas period.

Hojbjerg said: “This is very important and I’m proud that our club gives us a platform to share this moment and make a difference to those who need it.

“Christmas is about giving and being together – there are people who need what we can give and it is a nice feeling to be able to help.

“Using our platform, it is important to give back to where we are based and the community in which we play – this is something the club does every year. There are many good things happening with this foodbank here in Tottenham and it is important that this support continues.”

Fans can make a financial donation by texting COYSFOODBANK plus an amount to 70085*.
