The Amazons donated a pair of VIP tickets including a meet & greet. Singer Matthew Thomson said:

“Homelessness has been an issue close to our hearts for a long time. My mother for years was a nurse at a specialist homelessness clinic in Reading, and, while she’d never disclose personal details of anyone she worked with, I was exposed to a lot of the complexities around the issue.“

“I think we’ve all noticed a disconcerting increase of homelessness across London and the country over the last decade and it’s important for us to push back against the causes and remind ourselves that it doesn’t have to be this way.”

Streets of London’s director Ian Steuart Fothringham said:

“With the right support, people experiencing homelessness can turn their lives around. The money raised through this prize draw will allow us to provide funding to multiple projects across London that give homeless people the help they need, so that they can leave the streets behind and make a fresh start. Thanks to the generosity of the artists who donated special prizes, and to everyone who entered the prize draws, it has raised a fantastic sum that will make a real difference for people who are homeless in the capital”.

“We’re grateful to Crowdfunder for their help with setting up the pages for this prize draw and for waiving their platform fees.”
