For the second year running, eBay.co.uk is supporting The Albert Kennedy Trust, the UK’s leading LGBT youth homelessness charity, in celebration of Pride. This time, with exclusive merchandise designed by Henry Holland and young beneficiaries of The Trust’s work, as well as two specially designed pins by PINTRILL featured on dedicated hub http://www.ebay.co.uk/pride .
The Henry Holland hoodie will be priced at £40, while the t-shirt is £20 and the limited-edition pins can be bought for £5 each.
This will be the second year that eBay.co.uk has supported the charity, which provides safe homes, mentoring, training and support to young people 16-25 who are homeless or at risk of homelessness following coming out.
Says Henry Holland: “I feel passionate about the Albert Kennedy Trust and their amazing work and the team that make it all happen. I have worked with some of the young people who have benefited from their amazing support on this design and it really was a collaboration between us all. I hope everyone loves wearing it and promoting the message behind it as much as we enjoyed designing it.”
eBay spokesperson and VP, UK Trading, Murray Lambell says: “We are thrilled to be supporting the great work of The Albert Kennedy Trust and using the people power of our marketplace to make a difference to these communities. In 2017 eBay for Charity raised over £27M for thousands of UK charities, from small local organisations to big national charities.”
Tim Sigsworth MBE, CEO The Albert Kennedy Trust says: “The Albert Kennedy Trust is excited to be supported by eBay for Charity again this year. As the national LGBT youth homelessness charity, we are always looking to raise vital funds and awareness in new ways to support our work to provide safe homes and support to LGBT people aged 16-25. Through eBay’s Pride Hub everyone can show their support through a range of exclusive merchandise and one of a kind items so that no young person has to choose between a safe home and being who they are.”
