DONATIONS: Arsenal FC has announced an overseas project in China with its international charity partner, Save the Children, as the Club gets ready for its preseason tour of the Far East. The Arsenal Foundation will donate £300,000 ($466,000) to its official global charity partner over three years, helping to improve the quality of education of disadvantaged children aged 6-15, in some of Beijing's most under-resourced schools. Arsenal and Save the Children will train 200 teachers and 20 head teachers so that they have the necessary skills to plan and deliver improved and age-appropriate lessons for students in China's curriculum (Arsenal FC).
