Tranmere Rovers to support Shelter's 'No Home Kit' campagin for the second year running

21 December 2022

Tranmere Rovers are proud to be supporting Shelter's #NoHomeKit campaign by wearing our away kit for our Boxing Day fixture against Doncaster Rovers. 

After a successful year in 2021, Shelter are returning with their 'no home kit' campaign and asking clubs and fans to ‘ditch their home shirt’ for their games on Boxing Day to raise awareness of the fight to end homelessness and the housing emergency.

Homelessness, and the housing crisis in general, is reaching a critical point with 180,000 households having been made homeless since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic.

As a Club, Tranmere Rovers have worked with local charities on the Wirral to support the fight against homelessness so felt it was only right to take part in Shelter's campaign.

Tranmere Rovers Vice Chair, Nicola Palios spoke about the Club's backing of the campaign:

"Tranmere have been working with people who find themselves without a secure home for a number of years now, and it has become a Club tradition that on Boxing Day we host a large group of homeless people free of charge at Prenton Park for lunch and the match.  

"When we heard about the Shelter campaign, it seemed to fit perfectly with our ethos, and it gives a chance for ordinary fans to show their solidarity with people who find themselves in that situation, by wearing the away kit colours for that game.  Sometimes, a simple gesture of solidarity can show people facing hard times that they have not been forgotten."
