ELLIE Goulding will once again headline a show in support of the homeless charity, Streets of London, this December (2017).

Goulding will perform at London’s Royal Albert Hall on December 11 as well as hosting some very special guests for the evening.

This marks Goulding’s fourth consecutive headline year in conjunction with the charity event, which began in 2014.

The show will enjoy its second year at the iconic Royal Albert Hall, and offers a chance to see a one-off performance from Goulding, who is currently working on her new album.

Highlighting her work as ambassador for Streets of London, the charity’s Director, Ian Steuart Fothringham, said: “We’re thrilled that Ellie Goulding has generously chosen to support the charity once again to help raise vital funding for the homeless sector.

“Her appearances in support of Streets of London to date have helped to raise more than £230,000 and we’re very grateful for her ongoing commitment to supporting Streets of London and the homelessness cause.”

Writing about the forthcoming event, Goulding commented: “Homelessness in London remains as much of a problem as ever. The number of people sleeping rough here has doubled in the last six years and increased by 170% in the last decade.

“It’s as important as ever that these people are able to access the right support, so they can escape the damaging effects of life on the streets.”

The full line-up for the evening will be announced soon.

Tickets are available from 9am this Friday, November 3. All ticket proceeds go to Streets of London, registered charity number 1155242.

Further Information on Streets Of London

Streets of London’s purpose is simple: to get homeless people the support they need to leave the streets behind for good. This year, the charity is funding twelve projects across the capital that provide homeless people with the specialist support they need to get back on their feet and make a fresh start.

They’re currently funding projects including: a winter night shelter for vulnerable rough sleepers (that offers emergency accommodation and helps people to find longer-term housing); a rehabilitation hostel for those recovering from addictions; a life skills programme for young homeless people (that helps them to build self-confidence and independent living skills); and several employment support projects that help homeless people to look for jobs and then find and keep work.

Streets of London ensures that the money gets to where it will have a real impact, funding some amazing projects at some great lesser-known, smaller charities that offer direct support. In this way, they spread funding across the homeless sector to places it might not otherwise get to, to where it makes a real difference.
