A national homeless charity is today celebrating after bands such as The Barbs, The Others, Jet Plane Landing and Hope of the States were all spotted wearing red sweatbands in aid of the organisation. Other celebrities including Nell McAndrew have also been seen sporting the new sweatbands in support of Shelterís Million Children Campaign. The sweatbands are a rich red, with the new H for Shelter logo, and are boxed with an insert about the Campaign. They are available online at for £4.

A Shelter spokesperson said: "Celebrities, such as The Others and Nell McAndrew, have been fantastic in helping us to spread our message that there are over one million children in Britain suffering in bad housing. These children are having their health, education and future prospects damaged by terrible housing conditions." Shelter believes everyone should have a home and helps 100,000 people a year fight for their rights, get back on their feet, and find and keep a home. They also tackle the root causes of Britainís housing crisis by campaigning for new laws, policies and solutions.

Shelter launched the Million Children Campaign in April 2004 aimed at getting the Government to commit to ending bad housing for the next generation of children. The charity says homelessness, overcrowding and conditions that are officially unfit for human habitation are wrecking the lives of these children, with devastating impact on their health, education and future prospects.
