Famous football players have called on the community to give an hour of their salary to a local cause.

Tottenham Hotspur players Mousa Dembélé, Victor Wanyama, Toby Alderweireld and Moussa Sissoko have appeared in a short video to call on people to give an hour's worth of their salary to the Noah's Ark Children Hospice.

This is part of the Building the Ark campaign, which is calling for much needed funds now that the children hospice's building work is underway.

Tottenham Hotspur Captain, Hugo Lloris said: "Since the beginning of the Club’s partnership with Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice, we’ve been helping to raise awareness of its incredible work and we’re proud to be supporting the Building The Ark campaign.

"We’ve seen the difference Noah’s Ark makes to the lives of children with life-threatening or life-limiting conditions and their families.

"The charity is a worthy cause and I’d like to encourage our fans and people living in our local community to Give an Hour to help build The Ark – North and Central London’s only children’s hospice building."

The four teammates ask whether the people will join them in giving an hour, as the club members each did so as well.

Alison Goodman, director of income generation and communications for the charity said: "We were delighted when the Tottenham Hotspur first team decided to Give an Hour of their salary to help build The Ark. We hope it will help raise awareness that there is a desperate need for a new children’s hospice building to serve families in North and Central London.

"We hope people from all walks of life will follow their lead and donate an hour of their salary to help

children with life limiting or life threatening conditions and their families in the area.

"Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice is proud to be a charity partner of Tottenham Hotspur, a football club renowned for giving back to its local community."
