A stellar line-up of comedians including Josh Widdicombe and Sara Pascoe plus more special guests to be announced come together in aid of Shelter hosted by Absolute Radio’s Christian O’Connell.
For one night only, Eddie Izzard and an all-star line up of comedians take part in Stand Up For Shelter – an exclusive evening of comedy taking place at the Eventim Apollo to raise money for the housing and homelessness charity Shelter.
90,000 children are homeless in Britain today, with many forced to live in one room of a hostel or B&B, sharing kitchen and bathroom facilities with strangers and with nowhere to do their homework or even eat dinner. Every penny raised from the event will go towards helping Shelter to make sure that they can be there to support all those struggling with bad housing and homelessness.
Shelter helps millions with housing problems every year. It offers free, expert housing advice to anyone – no matter what their situation. A free helpline is open 365 days a year and they have face-to-face advice centres up and down the country, as well as specialist legal and support services for those who need more in-depth housing help.
Speaking on the show Eddie Izzard says: “It’s great to be doing a gig for Shelter, who are a lifeline for people battling to keep a roof over their heads. With demand for their services increasing every day, Shelter needs as much support as possible to make sure no-one has to fight bad housing or homelessness on their own. So please buy a ticket, have a laugh, and support a great charity at the same time.”
Stand Up For Shelter takes place on the 25th February 2015 at the Eventim Apollo London
