EVERTON GAME DEDICATED TO HELP A CAPITAL CHILD

Stamford Bridge will be hosting our national charity partner Help A Capital Child at this weekend's game to help the organisation launch their first national appeal.

The appeal will take place between Friday 14 October and Sunday 16 October with the aim of raising crucial funds for the Teenage Cancer Trust to help build specialist hospital units.

Six teenagers a day are diagnosed with cancer and are usually placed on a children's ward or with elderly patients to undergo treatment. As a result, young people can become isolated during these important life-changing times.

That's why HACC will be raising money to help the Teenage Cancer Trust fund a brand-new, state-of-the-art day treatment centre at UCL Hospital in London.

This unit will be the first of its kind in the UK and will allow hundreds of teenagers to receive ongoing treatment on a regular basis without being admitted to hospital.

To mark the appeal, Chelsea has dedicated this weekend's home game against Everton to our national charity partner. The club and fans will help raise money for the important cause through the matchday raffle, collections and donations.

The club has also given teenagers with cancer the opportunity to be VIP guests and watch the game in one of the stadium's hospitality boxes.

If you'd like to help before the weekend's game then HACC are holding an online auction for some incredible prizes, including a weekend at the British Grand Prix! Click Help A Capital Child Appeal for more information.
