Carlisle United will be supporting homeless charity Shelter's 'No Home Kit' campaign at our home game against Rochdale on Boxing Day.
The Blues will be wearing the black away kit for the clash at Brunton Park against Rochdale, who will also be supporting the campaign which is raising funds and awareness to help combat homelessness across the nation.
Homelessness has risen dramatically over the last decade. Since the start of the pandemic more than 180,000 households have lost their homes and been made homeless. Many of them are families with children. The pandemic has shown us the importance of having a safe home like never before and 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 they can’t do it alone.
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.
United are proud to be supporting the campaign and supporters are encouraged to take part too by wearing their away shirts for the fixture on Boxing Day.
