SUPPORTING HOMELESS, VULNERABLE AND ABUSED CHILDREN IN ST. LUCIA

The Jermain Defoe Foundation has been founded by Spurs and England striker Jermain Defoe to support homeless, vulnerable and abused young people in his family’s home country of St Lucia.

The foundation is a UK-based charity that works with the St Lucia government and existing organisations on the island that support and care for young people. This includes the Holy Family Children’s Home in Ciceron which caters for children ranging from babies to teenagers. This is the only dedicated children's home on the whole island.

Jermain also plans to establish a football academy in St Lucia to develop young talent and help players reach their full potential.

E18HTEEN project is about providing mentor support for identified young people in care and care leavers aged 16 -19 living in Barnet. Enfield. Haringey and Waltham Forest.

E18HTEEN is delivered by Tottenham Hotspur Foundation in partnership with the Virtual Schools of Children in Care in the London Boroughs of Barnet, Enfield, Haringey and Waltham Forest.

I am an ambassador for, and regularly donate my time and efforts to the Holy Family Children’s Home back in St Lucia, the birthplace of my grandparents.

Just spending a small amount of time with them is an overwhelming experience that I cherish immensely and knowing that a small token can improve a person’s life, is second to none.

"…The Stephen Lawrence trust are thrilled to have the support of Tottenham Hotspur and England striker Jermain Defoe – who by the way wears the no. 18 shirt."

TOTTENHAM Hotspur footballer and Cuffley resident Jermain Defoe has accepted a cheque for more than £7,200 on behalf of the Against Breast Cancer (ABC) charity.

The funds were raised by Cheshunt’s Tesco store through the sale of a crown-themed sleepwear range designed by supporters of the charity, The Perfectly Pink Company.

England and Tottenham Hotspur footballer Jermain Defoe has just accepted a cheque for £7227 from Tesco on behalf of charity Against Breast Cancer. Tesco raised the funds through the sale of a crown-themed sleepwear range designed by long term supporters of the charity, The Perfectly Pink Company.

Becci Smith, head of buying for clothing essentials at Tesco said; “Many of us know someone who has been affected by breast cancer and the work of Against Breast Cancer is important for many of our customers. We were delighted to sell this sleepwear range which proved very popular and I am thrilled it has raised funds for this important cause.”

There to witness the presentation at Tottenham Hotspur Football Club were Adele Cable, Director of The Perfectly Pink Company responsible for designing the clothing and accessories range with Tesco and Wendy Taylor Hill, Corporate Manager at Against Breast Cancer.

Wendy said ‘the popularity of the Royal wedding this year definitely helped boost sales of the crown motif sleepwear range. We want to thank Jermain for taking time out of his busy footballing schedule to accept the cheque on our behalf and to thank both Tesco and The Perfectly Pink Company for working with us to raise these funds.’

Against Breast Cancer

Against Breast Cancer is a charity dedicated to funding ground breaking research to improve detection and increase survival after breast cancer diagnosis. Our expert scientists use one of the largest collections of breast cancer patient samples in the UK to look for vital information that could identify the spread of the disease.

More women are surviving breast cancer every year. Against Breast Cancer’s research looks at the whole woman through three interlinked areas of research - biochemistry, immunology, and diet and lifestyle. The charity’s research is studying new ways that could help doctors identify and treat secondary breast cancer faster and more effectively.

The charity’s national Diet & Lifestyle study is one of the largest in the world looking at the effects of diet, lifestyle and complementary treatments on breast cancer and long-term survival. Support is vital for charity Against Breast Cancer if it is to continue its innovative research to develop ways to improve detection and survival after diagnosis so women and men can look forward to a future free of breast cancer.
