Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has already made some great moves during the coronavirus pandemic.
In addition to deciding not to reduce the salary of any employee, the first man of Chelsea made the club part of several humanitarian actions.
Chelsea’s latest move is to provide food to healthcare workers and people in vulnerable categories in the UK. In the next six weeks, meals will be distributed to those who need it most, and the plan is to distribute 78,000 servings.
They will be divided by 13.000 every week, distributed in 5 London hospitals and will be under the umbrella of the Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust. Chelsea already opened the doors to their Millennium Hotel at Stamford Bridge for NHS workers, with Abramovich paying the bill.
Chelsea chairman Bruce Buck said: “We are and have always been committed to supporting our communities, especially the vulnerable, and at this time we recognise this is more important than ever.
“Our owner, Roman Abramovich, has been instrumental in challenging us to find ways to support those in need and after we successfully launched the Refuge campaign and made the Millennium Hotel at Stamford Bridge available to the NHS, this was the priority so I am pleased to see it begin.”
