Stephen Fry, a new supporter of Shelter, has helped to publicise our virtual community, Build a City. He wrote an article about it, backed a competition on the Guardian website, and bought his own property in our online city.

Armando Iannucci has supported Shelter's call to update the antiquated definition of over-crowding. He produced a bitingly funny viral advertisement about the issue in the style of a mock news article, and gave an interview to Shelter's supporters' magazine.
Amanda Lamb of Channel 4's 'A Place in the Sun' is a dedicated supporter. She raised money for Shelter, and helped homeless people in India, by taking part in Building Futures. She's also the face of M&S Christmas 'food to go', sold in aid of Shelter.
Long-time Shelter supporter Jon Snow has lent his distinctive voice to an online advert condemning the outdated over-crowding laws. He has also backed Shelter in press adverts and our welcome booklet for new supporters.
Trisha Goddard is a new supporter to our work, but she has so far managed to donate a signed 'Origins' perfume bottle, build herself a house in our virtual community, Build a City, and add her name to the Wall of Shame in Norwich.
We have been delighted to have Samia Smith's support for the past few years. The Coronation Street actress has posed in the Shelter red chair, joined in the sponsored 'Walk for Home' in Manchester, and signed our Wall of Shame when it visited North West England.

Colin McAllister and Justin Ryan of 'How Not To Decorate' have urged the Scottish public to support 'It's time to get a move in' - the campaign to deliver 30,000 affordable homes for rent in Scotland. They also supported the Scottish 'Home is...' campaign, and encouraged shoppers to buy M&S 'food to go', sold in aid of Shelter.
