Arsenal in the Community held their annual awards ceremony in the Woolwich Suite at Emirates Stadium on Monday afternoon.

The event took place to recognise the achievements and work of 350 Arsenal in the Community participants over the course of the 2013/14 season.

Among the projects celebrated were the club's education initiative, the Arsenal Double Club, the social inclusion programmes Kicks and Positive Futures, and the long-running Arsenal Bowls programme.

Arsenal legends Alan Smith and Perry Groves were on hand to congratulate the winners, along with representatives from Islington Council. A video message from Gunners midfielder Abou Diaby was also played.

Another former Arsenal player, Roy Pack, was recognised for his contribution to the club's community work. Roy, who played for the club in the 1960s, now volunteers with Arsenal's mental health programme, Imagine Your Goals.

After the ceremony, attendees had the opportunity to have their picture taken with the FA Cup.

Head of Arsenal in the Community, Alan Sefton, said: "These awards are a great way for us to celebrate the achievements of the young people we work with, and to take stock of what we?ve achieved together over the past year.

"There are hundreds of people who make Arsenal in the Community what it is, and it's brilliant to be able to thank them here at Emirates Stadium."
