ARSENAL SUPPORT SAVE THE CHILDREN’S CHRISTMAS JUMPER DAY
Arsenal is supporting Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day again this year.
Theo “Woolcott“, “Sweater” Cech, “Gra-Knit” Xhaka and the rest of the Arsenal squad have donned festive jumpers for a special squad picture with mascot Gunnersaurus.
Arsenal stars Dan Carter, Jordan Nobbs and Heather O’Reilly have also shown their support for the campaign.
To help raise funds for our global charity partner Save the Children, the Gunners have created a range of exclusive Christmas Arsenal knits, which each carry a 20 per cent donation of the RRP to Save the Children.
The Arsenal Christmas Jumpers are available from ArsenalDirect.com and from the club’s three superstores while stocks last – in sizes for men, women, children and … dogs!
Swap your kit for a knit and sign up for Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day on Friday 15 December at ChristmasJumperDay.org
The Arsenal Foundation has been supporting Save the Children as its global partner since 2011 and has raised more than £2m to support the charity’s life-saving work.
Most recently we have worked with Save the Children to build football pitches for vulnerable children in Jordan, Somalia and Indonesia.
About The Arsenal Foundation
The Arsenal Foundation uses the power of football and the Arsenal name to inspire and support young people in north London and across the globe.
Locally, the club supports a wide range of community and charitable projects, from helping to refurbish football pitches on estates and schools around Emirates Stadium to bringing together survivors of torture for football coaching, English language lessons and therapeutic support.
Internationally, the Foundation has raised over £2 million for its global charity partner, Save the Children. Projects include education projects in Indonesia and China whilst other donations have been made to support emergency appeals such as the typhoon in Philippines, the Ebola crisis and the Child Refugee Crisis. Most recently, The Arsenal Foundation and Save the Children combined to build football pitches for vulnerable children in Iraq, Indonesia, Jordan and Somalia.
What unites the projects supported by The Arsenal Foundation is the belief that young people can thrive with the right support and the knowledge that Arsenal is behind them.
