Arsenal's Sanchez and Cazorla help open homeless centre in London

Arsenal stars Alexis Sanchez and Santi Cazorla have helped open a health and wellbeing centre for the homeless in London.

The Gunners kickstarted the 'Be a Gooner. Be a Giver' campaign in 2010 which has led to the opening of the state-of-the-art centre in Soho.

£500,000 was raised by supporters, players and staff to refurbish the building which will be run by leading youth homelessness charity Centrepoint and was opened by Alexis and Cazorla on Thursday.

Balbir Chatrik, Centrepoint director of policy, said: "We can't thank Arsenal and the club's fans, players and staff enough for all they've done to help us transform the building - where Centrepoint began more than 40 years ago - into a state-of-the-art health and wellbeing centre."
