Musician Kate Bush has a charity pop-up shop in London from 5th December.
The shop is at Coals Drop Yard in Kings Cross and is selling her latest lyric book How To Be Invisible, plus the new remastered versions of Kate’s music catalogue on vinyl and CDs.
Each book sold will include a special bookmark, while all profits from her pop-up shop will go to the national homelessness charity Crisis.
There will also be a daily raffle, with different prizes announced each day on her social media channels.
Kate Bush says about her chosen charity: “I can’t imagine how it must feel to be homeless. Our attention is drawn to this tragic issue at Christmas when most of us can share the celebrations with those we love but, of course, homelessness is there all year round – all the time.
“Without charities like Crisis, who would people turn to? Who would help? Where would the hope of a future come from? I hope this pop-up shop will raise some money for Crisis and raise more awareness of this life-saving charity”.
Crisis Chief Executive Jon Sparkes said; “We’re absolutely thrilled that Kate Bush has chosen to support us this Christmas by donating all of the profits from her pop up shop.
“Homelessness is one of the most urgent issues of our time – across the country thousands of people are needlessly suffering life on the streets or trapped in hostels and B&Bs. We simply can’t carry on like this when we know that homelessness is not inevitable.
“The money raised by Kate and her fans will help us provide food, warmth, and vital services to thousands of homeless people this Christmas – as well as the year round support they need to leave homelessness behind for good – and for that we’re incredibly grateful.”
