COVID-19: Chelsea admirably offer up use of Stamford Bridge hotel to NHS

Chelsea Football Club have offered the use of the Millennium Hotel at Stamford Bridge to the NHS to help deal with the COVID-19 pandemic.

Blues owner Roman Abramamovich has said he will cover all the costs of the hotel, and that the NHS have accepted the offer.

What this will do is it will allow NHS staff in North West London and beyond to stay closer to the hospitals they work in, aiding the London NHS facilities monstrously.

“It was decided the best way Chelsea can assist the NHS is to provide accommodation for NHS staff,” the club said on its website.

“Many of the medical staff will be working long shifts and may not be able to travel home or would otherwise have to make long commutes.

“Local accommodation helps maintain the health and well-being of these crucial personnel at this critical time.”

Chelsea doing good work

The Chelsea fans, as well as fans of other teams, have taken to social media to express admiration of Mr Abramovich and Chelsea for the offer.

Fair play to Roman Abramovich and Chelsea FC, this is a brilliant move and will go a long way towards helping the London emergency services.

Hopefully more football clubs will follow the lead of Chelsea and come up with ways of their own to help aid the fight against COVID-19.

Across the pond in America, we’ve seen many NFL stars pledge money and meals to their local communities to help get people to get through these challenging times.

Tyreek Hill, Patrick Mahomes, Rusell Wilson and JJ Watt have all pledged thousands of dollars to the cause.
