Wenger - Refugees' need is immediate

Arsenal will contribute to Save the Children's Child Refugee Crisis Appeal, giving £1 for every ticket sold for the Premier League game against Stoke City.

"The need is immediate so we decided to be immediately helpful," Arsene Wenger told

"You know that we are always involved with a helpful attitude, we have our own foundations and charity and this is a special case where people are in the need of special help.

"The need is immediate so we decided to be immediately helpful"

Arsene Wenger

"It's an exceptional circumstance and I'm very happy that our club contributes to help refugees to settle in countries where they come without anything. We'll give £1 for every ticket sold [against Stoke] and if everyone can contribute like we do then I think we can give very, very strong help."

There will be a number of activities taking place at Emirates Stadium on Saturday and the game will be attended by Save the Children's CEO, Justin Forsyth.

Supporters are encouraged to donate £5 by texting HOPE to 70008.

Arsenal have been working with Save the Children to help Syrian refugee children since 2012, contributing nearly £400,000 to date to help these vulnerable young people. Click here to find out more
