While the country tries to deal with the coronavirus pandemic, we have seen plenty o of people coming together like never before to help each other through the crisis.

Some employers have ensured their staff have been taken care of, the British Government has been proactive in trying to help businesses survive, while NHS workers have been hailed for their selfless efforts.

Tottenham Hotspur have now joined the fight against COVID-19 after the club confirmed on Monday that they have allowed their stadium to be used to support vulnerable individuals affected by the coronavirus pandemic.

The club’s 62,303-capacity stadium, which was been described by some in the media as the best in the world is now being used by the authorities as a storage base for food within the venue’s basement car park after discussions with Haringey Council, the Greater London Authority and the NHS.

It is revealed that food surplus distributors; The Felix Project, FareShare and City Harvest, have formed the London Food Alliance to ensure that the vulnerable won’t go hungry and the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium is said to be serving as one of Haringey’s two hubs, along with Alexandra Palace.

Speaking about the development, Daniel Levy said: “As a Club, we have always been clear about our commitment to the wider community – never has this been more important than it is now.

“We are immensely proud of the efforts of everybody involved in the fight against COVID-19 and see today as just the start of what we can do as a Club to assist.”

The government authorities, charities and the NHS are going to need all the help they can get if the United Kingdom is going to get through this crisis with minimal damage and get back on its feet as quickly as possible. It is certainly great to see the club doing their part for the local community.
