Chelsea to support sufferers of domestic abuse during the COVID-19 pandemic

Chelsea players have taken part in an online campaign alongside women's charity Refuge to raise money and awareness for sufferers of domestic abuse during the coronavirus pandemic.

The players, along with Chelsea Women's manager Emma Hayes, have pledged to match all donations to the charity during the next six weeks.

According to Refuge, last year 1.6 million women in the UK suffered from domestic abuse, and many face being trapped with their abusers because of the isolation measures recommended by governments around the world to contain the spread of coronavirus.
