This winter, Ben Sherman is proud to partner with the homeless charity Crisis. For half a century, the charity has been doing its bit to combat homelessness, and it’s an honour for us to join up with Crisis to celebrate the great work it’s done over the past 50 years, and highlight the work it still has to do through its Everybody In campaign.
Over the coming weeks, a selection of our Ben Sherman stores will be hosting gigs to raise awareness and funds for the charity, with our Liverpool and Birmingham stores playing host to Weekend Wars and Kioko respectively over the coming weeks.
However for this week’s Last Word, we’re focusing on the band taking to our temporary stage in our Carnaby Street store on December 14th: The Spitfires. Find out more about them here.
Since their formation in 2012, Watford-based four piece, the Spitfires, have released two critically acclaimed albums - Response and A Thousand Times - and toured the UK and Europe extensively, winning over fans across the continent with their rock and roll styling and spiky, Jam-influenced songwriting.
The band’s frontman, Billy Sullivan, has been earmarked by many in the industry as a special talent, with his sometimes witty, sometimes poignant lyrics really striking a chord with fans.
Crisis’ cause is also something very close to the band’s heart, as Sullivan explained to us:
“We can’t fail to be moved by the amount of homeless myself and the band see when we play up and down the country. After all, for many people, if they missed just two paydays - they could find themselves homeless too. It hits home how precarious things are in the UK at the moment.”
Continue to support Crisis by purchasing an ‘Everybody In’ tee where £5 from the sale of each t-shirt will be donated to Crisis to support their work to end homelessness.
