SNAPSHOT: What a difference a day makes

A record 85,000 people took part in activities for CSV's 'Make a Difference Day' last Saturday. Volunteers from Arsenal Football Club made a difference to four children from Ambler Primary School and Pooles Park Primary School in Islington, London, who visited Highbury football stadium to exchange language skills and appreciate different cultures. The children learned football-related phrases such as 'thank you', 'well played' and 'good goal' in Turkish, Somali and Bengali. Volunteers took part in 4,100 activities, including decorating and dog-walking, to help UK communities.

Elizabeth Salter, CSV's campaign manager, said: "More companies, schools, voluntary organisations and professional football clubs took part than ever before."
