SportPesa donates box to Foundation

SportPesa July 2018

Arsenal’s partner SportPesa, the Official African Betting Partner of Arsenal, donated its executive box to beneficiaries from local community projects.

An Arsenal Foundation-funded dance group, ActOne ArtsBase, and youngsters from Arsenal’s Down Syndrome Football Project all enjoyed hospitality at the north London derby on Sunday, November 6.

ActOne ArtsBase benfits from Foundation funding for a scheme called 'Work in Progress', which offers training in performance, dance leadership, support work, arts award training, choreography and arts administration. They ensure that training focuses on individual ability and maximising the potential for achievement.

Participants in Arsenal in the Community’s down syndrome football group is one of the many inclusive football projects coordinated by the club which ensures disability is no barrier to enjoying and playing the game.

Huge thanks is due to SportPesa for offering these young people the chance to enjoy a very special game in this season's footballing calendar.
