Chelsea FC Women’s players inspire Foundation participants on International Women’s Day

Blundell, who has been at the club since the age of 16, was also involved in our International Women’s Day celebrations.

The defender answered questions from members of our Chelsea Foundation Women’s Walking Football team, discussing what challenges she has faced and how she has overcome them, while also touching on the growth of women’s football in England.

Head of education Sam Gaskin-Kemp said: ‘International Women’s Day is an opportunity for us to recognise and celebrate the achievements of inspiring women, both in society and across women’s sport.

‘We were delighted to have Chelsea FC Women’s players join us at numerous Foundation events. They are role models for so many, and it was great to have them engaging with participants on our programmes.

‘Participants who took part in the events were given the opportunity to hear from the players, and learn who they have looked up to throughout their careers, and I’m sure they will have been inspired having heard from the players first-hand.’

The Foundation activity with the Chelsea Women players forms part of the clubs wider International Women’s Day campaign which is being celebrated across two weeks on the club’s channels.
