Tottenham Hotspur Stadium to be illuminated in NHS blue tonight
As confirmed by the club’s official site, the Tottenham Hotspur Hotspur Stadium will join up with other iconic venues across London in turning blue as a tribute to the NHS.
This coordinated show of gratitude is aimed to show support and appreciation to the personnel battling coronavirus with their health service. The gesture is a part of the #LightItBlue initiative.
Apart from our home, Wembley Stadium, the O2 Arena and Royal Albert Hall will also be illuminated in NHS blue as a show of support.
“The Club will tonight proudly illuminate its stadium in blue colors as part of a nationwide show of support for our wonderful NHS,”
The club statement also goes on to request people across the nation to join in a mass round of applause for the personnel fighting on the front lines against the pandemic as part of the #ClapForOurCarers campaign.
For a cause!
This is not the first time that the stadium has been lit up for a cause. Previous incidents include the ‘Wear it pink’ for breast cancer awareness and Stonewall’s Rainbow Laces campaign.
People across the country have also been asked to show their support for the NHS by wearing or creating something in blue. Blue is the trademark colour of the NHS and given their role in keeping the pandemic at bay, it should be worn with pride.
Tottenham have also urged fans to get involved in the campaign. They can post photos and videos on social media using the hashtags #ClapForOurCarers, #LightItBlue or #MakeItBlue and tagging in @SpursOfficial.
Spurs star Erik Lamela too voiced his thankfulness to the health workers recently. Jose Mourinho has been seen volunteering at Age UK to help the vulnerable in the Enfield Area while Toby Alderweireld will supply tablets to help the isolated stay in touch with their loved ones.
