Broadway, a leading London homelessness charity, has launched a photo competition to help promote its “Homes For Phones” campaign, which encourages people to donate their unwanted mobile phones to raise much needed funds.
By simply uploading a photo of the thing which most reminds you of home you could win the first prize of dinner with one of Broadway’s celebrity supporters, Phil Spencer, host of Channel 4’s property programme Location, Location, Location. There’s also a second prize of an exclusive personal guided tour for two of The Old Bailey, London’s famous Central Criminal Court.
The competition is running via Facebook and it closes on 31st January. If you don’t enter why not help the charity spread the word about their services by posting a link on your Facebook or Twitter status.
Rebecca Sycamore, Broadway’s Director of Fundraising and Marketing, commented: “The Phones For Homes campaign raises money for us through re-cycling mobile phones, so we thought it would be a good idea to keep the mobile phone theme going in a photo competition. Entrants can use their mobile to take a photo of the thing which most reminds them of home.”
Anyone wishing to donate their old mobile phone and therefore helping raise money for the charity can do so simply by sending it to: Broadway’s Homeless Appeal, FREEPOST RSAS-HJHE-AYKG, Broadway, 15 Half Moon Court, London EC1A 7HF.
The charity will receive a minimum of £3 for every mobile phone it receives and the campaign has the potential to raise a lot of money. The money raised from the campaign will help fund Broadway’s work with homeless people in London, helping them to find and keep a home and supporting them into training and work.
As well as donated phones the charity is also looking for commercial sponsors for the campaign. For further details of the campaign and to enter the photo competition visit Broadway London or their facebook page.
