Mizo Chelsea Supporters Club (MCSC) as part of its annual Christmas charity drive donated Rs 1.50 lakh to 14 families in Aizawl and other areas of Mizoram who are facing hardship due to COVID-19 pandemic.
“It is heart warming to see the joy of the donation recipients and the donors alike, all this is because of our beloved Chelsea FC. We are thrilled to inform you that there were 221 donors within hardly two weeks,” said Jonathan Lalremruata, the honorary secretary of MCSC.
The group of diehard Chelsea fans, MCSC was formed in 2011 and they have been doing the similar kind of charity drives including awareness campaigns and blood donations whenever their favourite club wins any major title. Apart from that they also do charity works on Christmas and on other occasions.
“Over the years our Christmas charity and other events have grown so much so that today with over 5,500 registered members. We are probably one of the largest such fan clubs of Chelsea. We have been featured in Chelsea magazine and a few times in the club’s social media handles,” Jonathan added.
Last year when Chelsea won UEFA Europa League Cup, the MCSC organised blood donation camps.
India internationals Jeje Lalpekhlua, Lallianzuala Chhangte and Daniel Lalhlimpuia from Mizoram are also members of this group.
“They are also supporting us for the cause. Lallianzuala has already donated his India jersey to give away to the lucky donor. This has really helped to get the publicity,” said Jonathan.
