We’re dedicating our match against Newcastle to The Arsenal Foundation, with some help from Petr Cech, Olivier Giroud and the rest of the squad.

Every year since our move to Emirates Stadium the boss and his players have dedicated a day’s wages to charity at Christmas, and this December is no different.

With your generous support too, we hope to raise the funds today to continue to grow the Foundation’s work in 2018.

The support of fans and players will allow us to create more safe places for children to play football in north London and overseas with Save the Children.

We will continue our partnership with Bob Wilson’s Willow Foundation, helping  to provide special days to seriously ill young adults.

And we will work locally with youth homeless charity Centrepoint and many others through the Gunners’ Fund and Islington Giving.

The Arsenal Foundation is in the privileged position to be able to inspire the young people it work with through the Arsenal name. With the generous support of fans and players – we can to do even more.
