Players Help Raise Money For Charity

2 September 2015

Posh players cook up a treat at Nandos with over £1,000 raised for local charity.

The Peterborough United players helped raise £1,065 for Age UK (Peterborough) after a hugely successful Nando's take-over which saw the squad cooking, waiting on tables and greeting customers.

The restuarant was packed out with customers who all donated to the charity with more money raised through a raffle and silent auction.

Marcus Maddison and Jack Collison helped make the customers feel welcome as they arrived with Jon Taylor, Ricardo Almeida Santos and Kgosi Ntlhe working the tills.

Michael Bostwick, Conor Washington and Jermaine Anderson were cooking on the grills with Jack Baldwin, Shaun Brisley, Kieran Sadlier and Alex Davey waiting on the tables.

Strikers Souleymane Coulibaly and Joe Gormley spent time talking to customers and making sure the event ran smoothly.

Midfielder Collison commented: 'It is great to meet the fans who pay their money each week to come and watch us and I really enjoyed it. It was a long shift but the lads really got into it and it is always nice to be part of a fundraising effort.'


Laura Read, manager of the Peterborough restuarant, said: 'It was a great event, the restaurant was full and the players seemed to enjoy themselves, I know that our staff did. We were able to raise a lot of money for Age UK, which was ultimately the aim and we will continue to work closely with the football club.'


The football club would like to thank Nando's for all their support and look forward to continuing the excellent partnership.

You will be able to see a video from the event on the club's YouTube channel next week.
