Cuffley Spurs striker Defoe accepts charity cheque

By Gemma Howe:

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.

Head of buying for clothing essentials at Tesco, Becci Smith, said "Many of us know someone who has been affected by breast cancer and the work of ABC 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."

The presentation took place at Spurs’ White Hart Lane stadium and among the guests were director of The Perfectly Pink Company Adele Cable and ABC corporate manager Wendy Taylor Hill.

Wendy said: "The popularity of the Royal wedding this year definitely helped boost sales of the crown sleepwear range.

"We want to thank Jermain for taking time out of his busy footballing schedule to accept the cheque on our behalf and both Tesco and The Perfectly Pink Company for working with us to raise these funds."
