Peterborough United Foundation and Light Project Peterborough are excited to announce a Big Sleep Out event at the Weston Homes Stadium.

Taking place on Friday 8th March 2024, we are encouraging people to sleep out at the stadium with us and/or do a virtual sleepout to help raise funds for Peterborough United Foundation and Light Project Peterborough.

The Foundation have been working with Light Project Peterborough for a number of months now and have numerous brilliant projects either taking place or in the pipeline. 

Foundation CEO, Gill Wignall, said: “The work Light Project Peterborough do is really important in tackling homelessness in the Peterborough area and its great to be working with them on multiple projects. It would be fantastic to see as many people taking part in the Big Sleep Out as possible as we look to raise awareness and funds for two great charities who both do such valuable work within our community.”

Light Project Peterborough have been running activities to help support those in need in our city, including those who are sleeping on the streets since 2015 and continue to raise awareness that everyone should have somewhere safe and secure to live in. At Peterborough’s homeless hub, The Garden House, they are committed to supporting the most vulnerable people in Peterborough and offer a multi-agency approach to provide advice and support from housing officers, GPs, drug and alcohol specialists, and many other professionals.

Steven Pettican (LPP CEO) said, “It’s wonderful to be working with Peterborough United and the Posh Foundation to bring together the city and raise vital funds to help those in desperate need within Peterborough. Gaining a small insight into what homelessness feels like will have a huge impact on people’s perception and attitude to those sleeping on the streets every night.”
