A host of celebrities are already supporting Strip4Shelter, including ex-England internationals Ian Wright and Tony Adams, as well as comedian Frank Skinner.
Ian Wright said: “I hope you’ll all join me for one day this summer and get into the World Cup fever by dressing up in your football kit to help Shelter find a brighter future for thousands of homeless and badly housed people across the country.”
In the 90 minutes it takes to play a football match 39 households are threatened with homelessness. Money raised through this unique fundraising event will go a long way to support the work Shelter does with thousands of households across the country struggling to keep a roof over their heads.
Shelter Chief Executive Campbell Robb, said: ‘Strip4Shelter is the perfect World Cup fundraiser and there is no better time to take part, raise money for charity and get staff on side than during the England Vs Slovenia match on the 23rd July.
‘Every year Shelter sees thousands of families across the country who are homeless or living in inadequate housing. Bad housing conditions can affect a child’s health, education and future prospects. With your support, we can help end bad housing for the next generation of children’
Showing support for England at work is just one of a number of ways people can get involved and in the competitive spirit this summer – why not Strip4Shelter whilst watching Wednesday’s England game, and sweepstake the first goalscorer, score and result and donate half the pot to charity.
