Arsenal have been shortlisted for a responsible business award along with TfL and Vanquis Bank.

The club have been selected because of their community programme in Islington, Camden and Hackney where they have coaches working with over 5,000 people each week at 150 venues.

Using a range of sport, education, employment, health and social inclusion, the club offers support as well as a sense of connection and belonging for many of the neediest people in the area.

The awards are run by The City of London Corporation which aims to rewards businesses for their contribution to society.

The awards are celebrating their 30th anniversary this year.

The winners will be announced in September at The Mansion House.
