Staff of Arsenal Football Club slept out on Thursday night to help raise money for the Club’s Charity of the Season, Centrepoint. 

The 12-man team were joined for the first part of the night by goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski to show support for London’s largest youth homeless charity.

‘Team Arsenal’, featuring Ivan Gazidis, Trevor Saving, Karen Ann Allchurch, Hendrik Almstadt, Tracy Bruce, Jacqui Pollard, Tom Bennett, Sam Scammell, Chris Soult, Sarah Chase, Laura Rogers and Kate Laurens joined over 400 people at Old Spitalfields Market and gave up their bed for the night at Centrepoint’s annual Sleep Out, to show solidarity with some of the most marginalised people in society. 

The event raised nearly £150,000 with a contribution of over £10,000 from the Club through staff fundraising which was matched by the Club.
