CANCER CHARITY VOTE

Nearly 80 charities have applied for a chance to hold bucket collections at Stamford Bridge and the club is now asking fans to choose who they'd like to see fundraising on a matchday.

There are five matchdays available for bucket collections, so the charities have been broken down into five different categories: medical charities, cancer charities, children and young peoples' charities, community and support charities and military charities.

The second category to go forward for the fans' vote through online polls will be cancer charities. The winner of this poll will then be allocated a matchday in October to hold bucket collections at Stamford Bridge.

There will now be three online polls taking place via the Chelsea Foundation website, Facebook and Twitter to allow as many fans as possible the chance to have their say. .
