STREETS OF LONDON #COMEONHOME PRIZE DRAW, 2-25 JUNE 2021
The last year has been a particularly tough time for people living on London’s streets.
Now the economic impact of the pandemic is leading to many more people becoming street homeless. The latest figures show more than 3,000 people slept rough in London between January and March, with more than half of them sleeping rough for the first time.
Streets of London is excited to announce the launch of our #ComeOnHome fundraising campaign which will raise money with a unique prize draw. The prize draw runs on Crowdfunder from Wednesday 2nd - Friday 25th June 2021.
The prize draw features items such as a Fender Telecaster guitar signed by Coldplay and tickets to see The 1975 with a chance to meet the band!
Enter today be in with a chance of winning brilliant prizes and at the same time helping to raise vital funds to support homeless people.
The prize draw features special prizes from 21 artists including Coldplay, The 1975, Jorja Smith, Bastille, Rag’n’Bone Man, Eric Clapton, Liam Gallagher, Jessie Ware, Duran Duran, Foals, Craig David, Laura Marling, The Vaccines, James Blunt, Hot Chip, The Chemical Brothers, Declan McKenna, Jack Savoretti, Will Young, The Amazons and Goldfrapp.
The Amazons have donated a pair of VIP tickets including a meet & greet. The winner will also receive a personalised video message from the band! Singer Matthew Thomson says:
“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 says:
“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 have donated special prizes, and to everyone who enters the prize draws, we hope to raise a significant 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.”
