Every year we help hundreds of people by providing food, shelter, information, advice and support and we can only do this thanks to your contributions. Every donation we receive really makes a huge difference to the lives of the brokenhearted, the oppressed and the poor in our community.

One off gift

Your donation could allow us to provide the intervention that changes a life, whether that’s by providing a bed for the night, a haircut or a simple chat and hug.

Regular gift

By offering a donation for the price of a cup of coffee or a takeaway meal per month you could enable us to make a real and impactful difference to someone’s life.

Take part in a challenge

There are many ways to fundraise for Light Project Peterborough from walks to skydives, swims to cycles and much more!

You could enter an organised event such as the Great Eastern Run or host your own like the team at CrossFit Strength Station in Peterborough who took part in a 24 hour Burpee-athon and raised an incredible £2825 for us.

If you’re inspired why not find an event or set your own challenge.

Once you’ve decided on your fundraising activity don’t forget to set up your Just Giving page.

We have a range of opportunities for you to invest in our good work through major giving, and we would like to work with you to find the right opportunity for your generosity. In return for your support we will ensure that you are able to see the difference your support has made, through meeting our team, receiving updates on the work you support, and invitations to join us at special events.

Leave a gift in your will

A gift in your will is an incredible way to leave an eternal legacy and continue making a difference after your death.

Any gifts that you leave to charity in your will are also exempt from Inheritance Tax and, accordingly, they can reduce the amount of Inheritance Tax due on your estate.
