Help for homeless people
Eric Clapton is supporting Streets of London’s #ComeOnHome campaign, which is raising vital funds to help homeless people off the streets.
People experiencing homelessness are some of the most vulnerable and marginalised in our society, and the last year has been a particularly tough time for them.
The economic impact of the pandemic is leading to a whole new wave of people becoming street homeless. The latest figures show more than 3,000 people slept rough on the capital’s streets between January and March, with more than half of those people sleeping rough for the first time.
Centres across London are they are doing all they can to keep providing support despite being hard-hit by loss of funding.
By entering this special prize draw you will be in with a chance of winning a brilliant prize and at the same time helping to raise vital funds to support homeless people.

The impact of your support
With the right support, people who have experienced homelessness can turn their lives around. It can have a huge impact on someone’s life.
Will, who has benefitted from one of the projects supported by the charity, has this to say about how things have changed for him:
“The difference is unbelievable, you know, when I went in there, I didn’t want to live. If I had the guts to kill myself, I would have… When I went out of there, I felt confident about my life, hopeful about my life. Yeah. it’s changed my life. Saved my life, 100%”.
Terms and Conditions
For all of the prize draws featuring live music, if the coronavirus pandemic causes the specified dates to be rescheduled/postponed/cancelled, the prize will be valid for another headline UK show by the artist at the next available opportunity.
