Tottenham have announced that the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium will be illuminated at 8 pm tomorrow to mark the National Day of Reflection in the UK.
The day, March 23, marks one year since the UK first entered a full national lockdown as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The National Day of Reflection, spearheaded by end-of-life charity Marie Curie, will mark a day for those around the country to remember all those who have lost their lives to the pandemic.
Marie Curie estimates that over three million people in the UK have lost their lives since the pandemic began and tomorrow thus gives the opportunity for people to mourn those who have fallen and celebrate their lives.
The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium will be illuminated yellow at 8 pm tomorrow along with other landmarks across London including Wembley, London City Hall and Nelson’s Column.
The club confirmed that there will also be 12-minute silence observed at noon.
Daniel Levy said this regarding the National Day of Reflection: “It is hard to believe that Tuesday marks the one-year anniversary of the country entering its first lockdown – it is important we reflect on what has been an incredibly difficult time for us all.
“Not least for those that have lost loved ones to all causes during this past 12 months, including so many of those connected with the Club. Our thoughts remain with everyone who has been bereaved during this time.
“We hope that our stadium illumination taking place at 8 pm will serve as a fitting tribute, bringing comfort to those who are grieving.”
