Theo Walcott, Danny Welbeck, Laurent Koscielny and Francis Coquelin spent a couple of hours with our children’s group designing Christmas t-shirts, doing arts and crafts, signing cards and also giving out amazing presents!danny-jacob

Arriving with Centre 404 branded stockings, in Arsenal colours of course, the footballers gave out presents individually to each child and even took some time to learn some makaton.

The atmosphere was amazing and the kids were super excited and couldn’t stop smiling. ‘This is the best day of my life’ was overheard quite a few times demonstrating just what an impact the footballers made.

We would like to say a big thank you to The Arsenal Foundation for arranging this wonderful afternoon and thank you to all the players for giving up their time so close to Christmas.
