About

I have been a very keen supporter of the Peterborough Winter Night Shelter for the past 3 years and although I haven't personally ever been homeless, I have seen the devastating effects it has on people who have nowhere to call home - whether these be physical, emotional or both. 
With the love and support given through the Night Shelter, the transformation of lives has been amazing and I feel so humbled to have been able to witness this.
This October has seen the opening of the Day Centre within the Cathedral grounds offering practical services and support  - another huge step forward in further assisting the people on the streets.
I would like to continue to support an organisation that is doing something positive towards helping and serving the Peterborough rough sleepers and I will be volunteering this winter at 1 of the 7 church communities as one of 400 volunteers who provide food, shelter and love during the coldest time of the year.
Please help me raise a bucketload of money for this amazing charity.
Any donation however big or small will be very gratefully received.
Thank you sooooo much xxx

Loving the Homeless in Peterborough

"Anything is Possible if You Believe"

Our guests find new hope for the future and real belief in themselves to escape some of the most terrible situations. We are honoured that for the last 4 years Light Project Peterborough has been doing its best to transform the lives of the those sleeping on the streets.

For the last 3 winters Peterborough Winter Night Shelter has provided 13 weeks, 91 nights of accommodation and support. This winter, 2018/19, we are now offering 18 weeks of overnight accommodation,126 nights of amazing love and support to help the homeless get off the streets.

Furthermore, we have learnt there is little support in the day time to help the homeless release their amazing potential. We have now opened the Garden House in Peterborough City centre offering offering GP support, CV and job search, housing advice, volunteering, art therapy and much more. On a daily basis this provision practically helps people to break free from sleeping on the streets.

With your support we can do so much to help the homeless in Peterborough. Thank you so much for thinking of our work.
