The Tottenham Tribute Trust
Your Charity. Our Heroes.
The Tottenham Tribute Trust was set up in 2002 to help people connected with Spurs who have fallen on difficult times.
The Tottenham Tribute Trust is a registered charity (Charity Registration Number: 1094092)
Although run by a Board of Trustees independent of the Club, the Tottenham Tribute Trust works closely with the Club and was created by a joint initiative between the Club and supporters.
In October 2002, Daniel Levy suggested to the Founder Trustees who were setting up the Tottenham Tribute Trust that we hold a match with DC United at White Hart Lane to raise funds, and within days the game was arranged. It was a great example of how the Club and the fans can work together.
With very little notice, Jurgen Klinsmann, David Ginola, Chris Waddle and a host of other Spurs greats turned up to play one more time, and a crowd of around 28,000 gathered to enjoy the match and to make their contribution to a genuinely worthwhile cause.
The money raised that night, and since, has enabled the Tottenham Tribute Trust to help numerous former players, many of whom are household names, the very people who created our wonderful traditions, and who, in their time, made Spurs a club to be loved by its supporters and feared by its opponents. Whilst many of the people who have been helped by the Tottenham Tribute Trust since its formation in 2002 prefer not to be named, the organisation has been able to provide help to former legends.
The Tottenham Tribute Trust relies on donations to continue helping members of the wider Spurs family who are in need – you can make a donation through any of these options.
The Tottenham Tribute Trust is run by a Board of independent and voluntary Trustees with a range of backgrounds and skills who are united in their love of Tottenham Hotspur and a fierce determination to provide help where it is needed to members of the Spurs family who are in need.
Jonathan Adelman (Chairman)
I come from a family of Spurs supporters, my grandpa who used to walk to games from Stamford Hill in the 1930’s, sneaked me in to my first game under the the turnstiles of the old West Stand as a 5 year old in 1978. I was hooked from that moment and have been an East Stand season ticket holder since 1993.
A solicitor by profession with stints at City law firms and as General Counsel & Company Secretary at various FTSE companies, I’m now Director or Strategic Projects for Britvic plc.
I am proud to have been one of the founder Trustees, serving as the Tottenham Tribute Trust Secretary from formation until 2010, and as Chairman since 2007. It is both a privilege and humbling to play a part in assisting those who have over the years played their part in making Tottenham Hotspur the institution it is today.
Daniel Wynne (Trustee)
Daniel is Spurs through and though. He has been a season ticket holder since the age of 5. He is the Club’s commentator for Spurs TV, a position he has held for 16 years.
Daniel served on the board of the Tottenham Hotspur Supporters’ Trust since its inception through to 2011 and was chairman for 6 years.
Daniel enjoys his work as a Trustee of the Tottenham Tribute Trust and has been a Trustee since the Tottenham Tribute Trust’s launch back in October 2002.
He is proud to give something back to the players of yesteryear who helped made the Club what it is today.
Lauren Crader (Trustee)
I am married with 3 daughters and have a young granddaughter. All are brought up with Spurs in their blood as my dad did with me!
I originally worked in banking, but then became a full time mum. I returned to work when my girls were older, but moved into supporting special needs children in school. I have been a Trustee since 2010 and still can not believe how lucky I am to be able to give something back to the club I love.
There can be nothing better than being in the privileged position of assisting those who helped create the history and heritage of our great club.
While as Spurs fans we must look forward, the Tottenham Tribute Trust will always care for the past.
Peter Haring (Trustee)
Born a Spurs fan, the first game Peter went to was Spurs 7-2 demolition of Liverpool. Jimmy Greaves got a hat-trick.
Peter has held many senior company directorships, and important advisory roles for government, local government, public and private sector organisations and charities.
He was one of the founders of both the Tottenham Hotspur Supporters Trust and the Tottenham Tribute Trust, was the first elected chairman of THST, and is proud to do what he can to help the Tottenham Tribute Trust in assisting our wonderful ex-players.
John Ellis (Trustee)
I am a old self employed management consultant with a chartered accountancy qualification living in Nottinghamshire having held a number of Finance Directorships in the U.K. and overseas.
My first visit to White Hart Lane was in March 1968 after which I have been to well over a thousand games and am a season ticket holder in the East Lower attending almost all home and away games.
Adrian Mawlabaux (Trustee)
Adrian was elected as a trustee of the Trust in April 2017.
As a life long Spurs fan he is passionate about helping those who have contributed to history of the Club.
By day Adrian is a corporate solicitor in a London based law firm with experience of advising a number of football players, agents and clubs.
