ARSENAL fans have a chance to win a shirt signed by 21 of the 2007/08 season squad in an online raffle which aims to raise money for charity.

Rashida Barnett of St Albans is raffling the shirt for Orphans In Need, a charity which works with orphans and widows in third world countries to promote education and basic health care. Mrs Barnett is hoping to raise £1,000 through £2 tickets which are available online.

The shirt was given to her by manager Arsene Wenger at Arsenal's training ground in London Colney and included in the signatures are Cesc Fabregas, Theo Walcott and Kolo Toure.

Mrs Barnett was made aware of the work of Orphans In Need by her brother-in-law who is a volunteer for the organisation.

The tickets are available at www.raffle.it/raffle/10117.
