LOTTERY WINNER SNAPS UP CHAIRMAN FOR THE DAY

Season ticket holder Mark Edwards has won the Ultimate Matchday Prize in the Chelsea Foundation Lottery and there are more Chelsea-related rewards up for grabs this week.

The Ultimate Matchday Prize will see Mark and his guest get VIP tickets into the Dolce and Gabbana Directors' Box. That means a three-course meal and complimentary drinks before kick-off, as well as VIP hospitality treatment throughout the game.

'I was delighted to hear I'd won,' said Mark, who travels all the way from Truro in Cornwall to support the Blues.

'It's going to make the long miles along the motorway even more attractive, although there is a bit of competition going on in the household whether it will be my son or wife who comes to the game with me. They are both very keen so there's a little bit of pressure on.

'I joined the Chelsea Foundation Lottery this summer after finding out that all the profits from the Lottery go towards the club's community projects. It's a great idea and it was the determining factor that made me sign up.'

This Friday, Chelsea Foundation Lottery members could be in with a chance of winning the first quarterly cash prize of £1905, a figure which commemorates the club's inauguration.

There is still time for non-Lottery-members to sign up for Friday's draw, just click Chelsea Foundation Lottery for more information. 

The Lottery helps raise vital funds for the Chelsea Foundation, which uses the power of football to provide programmes and induce positive changes in peoples' lives and their communities, address inequalities in society and boost health and fitness.

As a result, the Lottery allows both the club and fans to give something back to our surrounding communities. Chelsea is the first football club to utilise a lottery in order to raise funds for charitable causes. The Lottery draws its winners every Friday.
