Arsenal stars will be looking to raise more than just three points when they take on London rivals Fulham on Saturday
For the Gunners have announced their home game will be dedicated to its global charity partner, Save the Children.
Players will be donating a day’s wages along with many Arsenal staff to help raise funds for the charity. Supporters are also being encouraged to get involved and give what they can.
On Monday, first team players Johan Djourou and Andre Santos (pictured) visited Emirates Stadium to take part in a special Families and Schools Together (FAST) session run by the charity.
The programme is one of the signature UK education projects being supported by Arsenal during the partnership.
It aims to help increase parents’ engagement in their children’s education by encouraging them to perform everyday tasks and develop their skills together.
