On the occasion of their match against Crystal Palace on Sunday, Tottenham lent their support to Shelter’s #NoHomeKit campaign, which aims to reduce the number of homeless people in England.
Tottenham on the bed of the homeless. During this Sunday’s (3-0) Crystal Palace reception, Spurs took advantage of Boxing Day to support Shelter’s #NoHomeKit campaign, which seeks to reduce the number of homelessness in England. To raise awareness among families and the public, the charity and the Tottenham club called on supporters at the stadium to replace their home shirts for an away shirt. During the warm-up, Spurs players wore their second tunic bearing the inscription “No Home Kit”.
25 street houses in 90 minutes
The club then asked supporters at the stadium to take their photos and post the images on social media, before some of them were shown on giant screens at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. “Boxing Day is a special occasion in the football calendar where we see many families coming together to support our teams across the country,” Tottenham president Daniel Levy said in a statement. There are thousands of people in the UK who will not be able to enjoy the festivities and have no place to go. It is essential that we show our support for the #NoHomeKit campaign to raise awareness about the homeless issue. Shelter and we are proud to support the #NoHomeKit campaign. ,
Just before Christmas, the London club distributed food items donated by Getir, one of Spurs’ partners. These food items were then distributed among families using the shelter’s services. “In the duration of a 90-minute football match, 25 homes will be homeless, many of them families with children. This Boxing Day, fans are helping us find safe homes and safe homes for those who leave their team colors. Will help those whose lives are in danger,” explained Osama Bhutta, campaign director at Shelter. So it was a perfect day for Spurs both on and off the pitch.
