Bradford Bulls have announced that the club be showing their support for Shelter’s #NoHomeKit campaign by wearing their 2022 away kit on Boxing Day against Halifax Panthers.
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, currently hidden away in unsuitable temporary hostels.
Shelter’s #NoHomeKit campaign aims to raise awareness of the housing emergency as part of a nationwide campaign.
Corporate Social Responsibility Director Bolu Fagborun said:
“I think it’s a really important issue and supporting Shelter to highlight homelessness on Boxing Day, really fits into the values we hold dear at Bradford Bulls as a force for civic good.”
The Bulls have recently released their home kit, throwing it back to a bygone era with the likes of Robbie Paul helping to advertise the jersey with Paul still being a key figure at Odsal.
It’s the latest initiative from a rugby league club in a bid to aid society, with Hull FC earlier in the week announcing that they would be giving all supporters a chance to test their heart and brain health in accordance with their main sponsor.
