Dover Athletic will be supporting homeless charity Shelter’s ‘No Home Kit’ campaign at our home game against Dagenham & Redbridge on Boxing Day.
We will be wearing our all-purple kit for the clash at Crabble to support the campaign, which is raising funds and awareness to help combat homelessness across the nation.
Homelessness has risen dramatically over the last decade. The pandemic has shown us 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.
The charity have asked for the football community to 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 for people without a home.
The aim of the campaign is to raise awareness of the scale of homelessness across the country and raise funds to support Shelter’s frontline services and its campaigns to end the housing emergency for good.
The club are proud to be supporting the campaign and supporters are encouraged to take part too by wearing their away shirts for the fixture.
