Prime Christmas

What is Prime Christmas?

'Prime Christmas’ hopes to raise money to help the homeless and rough sleepers on Peterborough’s streets keep warm this winter, and put smiles on the faces of deserving children and their families this Christmas.

"Let's all come together and help the homeless stay warm and make those children happy this festive season,” Nabil Ilahi, operations director at Peterborough Prime, said.

"We want to support the community by breaking the stigma of suffering in silence.”


Earthquake Appeal

Nearly 240,000 rescue workers, including volunteers, continue to search for survivors in the 11 quake-hit provinces in Turkey.

Peterborough Prime has been working with the Turkish Embassy, authorities and the Turkish Community Association to deliver aid to the countries.

The Turkish government has said 173,000 buildings have so far been recorded as collapsed or severely damaged - with 1.9 million people seeking refuge in temporary shelters, hotels and public facilities.

“We delivered over 500 boxes of aid in three full vans in the first week of the appeal,” Nabil added.


“The situation is shocking, but we are proud of the response from people in Peterborough.”
