Chelsea FC Women vice-captain Millie Bright is supporting the Make-A-Wish Foundation, a non-profit organisation that creates life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses.
Bright has created a keepy-ups challenge on her social media channels called ‘MilliesMatchdayChallenge’ and the aim is to raise money and ‘put smiles on people's faces’.
On Sunday 3 May at 2pm, Bright will go live on her Instagram to carry out the challenge and she is encouraging as many children as possible to join in.
The 26-year-old has created four variations of a keepy-up – which you can find here – with the aim of anybody being able to get involved by using ‘#MilliesMatchdayChallenge’ so she can share people’s videos.
‘I’m really proud to be on board with Make-A-Wish,' Bright said. ‘Just seeing them [the children] smile and giving them that one wish that they picked, it’s touching.
‘Growing up I never expected to be in this position, I never thought I would be a professional footballer and be in a position where I can make a difference.
'I’m always wanting to give back to people and I think that is me as a person, I like to help people, I like to make people laugh and smile.
‘As soon as this opportunity was presented to me I didn’t hesitate. I always want to do things for others and it’s nice to finally be able to do that.
‘I've had a lot of responses so far from the kids sending in their videos and that's what we want. We want everybody to be involved. Hopefully they can have fun and we can raise a lot of money,’ Bright continued.
