Why football teams are wearing their away kit on Boxing Day

Whether watching from the terraces or gathered around the TV, football understands the importance of home.

But in the space of one 90-minute game, 25 households will become homeless in England. Many of them will be families with children.

By ditching your home colours this Boxing Day and donating to Shelter, you’ll be helping find safe and secure homes for people whose lives are on the line.

”I got involved in this campaign after hearing some of the harrowing statistics concerning homelessness in this country. Something needs to change and I'm hoping this campaign can be the start of that.”
