The gifts were handed out on behalf of the club to 80 children aged from four months to 21 years old.
Spurs have a special relationship with the Rustenburg village, which opened in 2006 and includes Tottenham Hotspur House, uniquely funded by monies received from players’ fines.
Members of Spurs’ current first team also sponsor children in the village. Last July, Spurs and England centre half Michael Dawson met 12-year-old Aubrey, the child he sponsors at the village. See the report here.
