Chelsea recently won the Women’s Super League title and they have now decided to donate the prize money for a great cause.

As per Guardian, the Blues have donated £100,000 to a domestic abuse charity. 

The Chelsea Women’s team have had a fantastic season but they would have loved to have won the title in a normal manner.

Football was halted in March due to the Coronavirus crisis and the Women’s league was suspended as well.

The league has now been decided on a points-per-game basis and the Chelsea side have been awarded the title because of their lead at the top.

The Londoners believe that the Coronavirus crisis has affected charities as well and the organizations are struggling to support all the victims of domestic abuse.

The donation from Chelsea women will certainly help such struggling charities as it will ensure that no woman or child is turned away from safety. 

“It’s a charity that’s close to the hearts and minds of the women’s team, and is very important to our owner, Mr Abramovich, and everyone at the club,” said Emma Hayes, the Chelsea manager. “It makes me proud our club is supporting those less fortunate in times of need.

 “Up until now our involvement was about supporting the campaign publicly with a call to action but we all wanted to do more than that and if donating our prize money can ease some of the concerns and worries people have, then it’s the least we can do.

“It’s an important message. It’s a campaign that’s really dear to us and the best way we can demonstrate our support further is by committing our prize money towards it and helping those in need.”
