Chelsea Football stars welcome children from Momentum Children's Charity to their Christmas party
Momentum Children’s Charity, a local organisation based in Kingston that supports children with cancer and life-challenging conditions, were delighted to take eight children they are currently supporting to the Stamford Bridge children’s Christmas party thanks to the Chelsea Foundation.
The Christmas party, which was attended by the Chelsea FC men’s first team squad, put on activities and games to entertain the children. Chelsea Football Club organise the event each year for over 150 junior fans, and this year kindly extended the invite to children from Momentum Children’s Charity whom could benefit from a break away from the struggles of treatment and hospital.
Bianca Effemey, Founder and CEO of Momentum Children’s Charity, said, “What a lovely event for Chelsea Football Club to organise. Christmas time can be especially tough for the families we support and its events like these that can really help ease some of these stresses and put smiles on faces.”
Mother of 6 year-old Lewis, Chloe Joslin, said: “Lewis is a huge fan of Chelsea and he had such a great time. It made his year meeting N'Golo Kanté and David Luiz. I am sure we’ll be hearing about this day for the entire Christmas period! Thank you so much to Chelsea Football Club and Momentum Children’s Charity.”
This Christmas Momentum Children’s Charity is looking to raise £15,000 to help local families who are struggling with the pressures of having a child who has cancer or a life-challenging condition.
