This Saturday is the official Arsenal Charitable Trust collection day. There will be a team of volunteers with collection buckets around the Stadium collecting donations in aid of TreeHouse, Building for Babies and Maytree. Any donations will be greatly appreciated.

The TreeHouse Trust (TreeHouse) is the national charity for autism education, based in north London and founded in 1997 by a group of parents whose children had recently been diagnosed with severe autism. TreeHouse was established in response to huge unmet national need for specialist education for children with autism, TreeHouse's vision is to improve, through education, the lives of children with autism and the lives of their families.

Building for Babies
The Whittington Hospital's Building for Babies appeal was launched in 2006 to raise £600,000 to expand and refurbish the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), where babies who are born too early or who are still ill at birth are treated. Building for Babies aims to radically improve the environment for babies and their families, making their time in NICU as comfortable as possible.

Maytree is unique in that it's aim is to save lives and relieve suffering by providing a residential sanctuary for people in a suicidal crisis. They offer a safe, non-medical environment where people can rest, reflect and be befriended in confidence. Maytree is a charity funded entirely through the generosity of donors, large and small, individuals, companies and other trusts.
