Arsenal stars Theo Walcott, Cesc Fabregas, Andrey Arshavin and Bacary Sagna use animal magic to help Great Ormond Street Hospital

They may be in the hunt for the Premier League and Champions League but Theo Walcott, Cesc Fabregas, Andrey Arshavin and Bacary Sagna took time out from Arsenal's trophy chase to help a good cause.

Fundraising Day - a short film starring winger Walcott, captain Fabregas, Russian playmaker Arshavin and French defender Sagna dressed as furry animals - is released today in aid of the Gunners charity of the season Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity.

Walcott said: 'I've visited the children at Great Ormond Street a few times now. Every time you go, you hope just to put a smile on the kids' faces - and their families' as well.

'And maybe that will give them that extra boost to help them get well. Visiting the hospital and doing this film is the least we can do to help.'
