Northern Premier League to support Shelter #NoHomeKit campaign

By James Gordon

The Pitching In Northern Premier League has announced its support for the Shelter #NoHomeKit campaign.

The campaign asks for clubs to ‘ditch their home shirt’ for their games over the festive period to raise awareness of the housing emergency.

Homelessness has risen dramatically over the last decade. The pandemic has shown the importance of having a safe home like never before - yet more than 180,000 households have been made homeless since March 2020. With a tough winter ahead even more people could lose their homes. Shelter’s frontline services are working harder than ever to help people find and keep a home this Christmas, but we can’t do it alone.

The #NoHomeKit campaign is a simple idea that anyone in football can be involved in. The football community will come together for the Boxing Day round of fixtures and ditch their home shirt, and instead wear an away or third kit, in a powerful act of support and solidarity.

Supporters can get involved by also wearing their favourite away or third kit.

With the campaign aims to raise awareness of the scale of homelessness across the country, there is also the option to donate to Shelter through its website or by text message. Visit shelter.org.uk/nohomekit or text ‘HOME’ to 70455 to donate £5*.

*Texts cost your standard network rate + £5, and Shelter receive 100% of your donation
