HOMELESSNESS IN LONDON
Rough sleeping has risen by more than a third in the UK’s capital in the last year, so help for homeless people is needed more than ever right now.
The cost-of-living crisis is pushing more and more people into homelessness, with rising prices forcing people who have never slept rough before onto the streets for the first time.
Streets of London (registered charity 1155242) funds specialist support for people who are homeless in London and is raising money with this unique prize draw.
Streets of London’s director Ian Steuart Fothringham says
“The money raised through this prize draw will allow us to provide funding to multiple projects across London that offer vital immediate help for homeless people as well as longer-term support so that people can escape the streets for good.”
“We would like to thank all of the artists who have generously donated prizes, as well as the team at Crowdfunder, Grafikroom, Starscream Communications and everyone else who has helped to make it happen.”
“A big thank you to everyone who enters the prize draws. With your support, we hope to raise a significant sum that will make a real difference for people who are homeless in the capital.”
Streets of London ambassador Mark Knopfler and Gibson guitars have donated a signed Heritage Cherry Sunburst Gibson Les Paul Classic guitar to this prize draw fundraising campaign.
