    TEAM-MATES Islington Giving and The Arsenal Foundation have revealed that they are investing £200,000 to help launch a series of new projects for young people in the borough this year. 

    The two organisations, who have been working in partnership since 2014, will be supporting Centre 404, the Angel Shed Community Theatre and Prospex in Camden Road, Holloway, All Change Arts Ltd in St Peter’s, Breakin’ Convention in Clerkenwell, and Fully Focused Community Trust in Hornsey. 


    Together they will run free high-quality activities for youngsters, and help them to build and strengthen skills to help make the most of their free time. 

    Arsenal stars Laurent Koscielny, Danny Welbeck, Theo Walcott and Francis Coquelin visited Centre 404 to meet some of the young people there and take part in some of the activities.  

    Svenja Geissmar, chair of The Arsenal Foundation, said: “We’re delighted to build on our partnership with Islington Giving.
