The second Big Stamford Bridge Sleep Out will take place on Saturday 27 March and you can get involved to help raise funds for the charity Stoll.
Unfortunately because of current restrictions the sleep out will be virtual and not at Stamford Bridge, but what that does mean is any Chelsea supporter can take part, whether you are six or 60, and live in Chelsea, China or California. You could choose your garden, the living room floor or even the Shed (not that one!), or get the whole family involved for a night camping.
Organised by the Chelsea Supporters' Trust, the event will raise funds for our next-door neighbours Stoll, who provide supported housing for vulnerable and disabled veterans and dependants from all three armed forces. Based in the Oswald Stoll mansions adjacent to Stamford Bridge, Stoll work with approximately 500 individuals each year. They address a wide range of barriers to independence, and ensure they are securely housed and their health needs, including emotional wellbeing and mental health, are being addressed effectively.
Stoll has been and continues to be impacted greatly by Covid-19 with large numbers of veterans shielding or self-isolating due to underlying health conditions. Throughout the pandemic Stoll has provided front-line support, moved health and wellbeing programmes online, and supported older and disabled veterans with food parcels and domiciliary care.
