Doctor Who’s Peter Capaldi has teamed up with Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Harry Winks, Hugo Lloris and Lucas Moura and other Tottenham Hotspur first team players to raise funds for Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice.

A campaign called #KeepNoahsArkAfloat was created to support the charity. Noah’s Ark is facing its biggest ever challenge due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The hospice is experiencing an all-time peak in demand for its services to care for seriously unwell babies and children and their families in North and Central London. The demand is so great that the charity now requires £500,000 to recruit enough nurses and carers to meet the needs of the children.

Scriptwriter Ivor Baddiel penned new song to launch the fundraising campaign. Scored by composer Erran Baron-Cohen and narrated by actor Peter Capaldi, it follows the tune of The Animals Went in Two by Two. The video features the Spurs players getting involved with the children in Noah’s Ark activities.

Capaldi, said, “Noah’s Ark provides the most wonderful care for babies and children in great need. I hope with all my heart that this campaign raises the funds needed to support those relying on the charity”.
