Come down to Cathedral Square at 5.15pm today to play #Whamageddon2018 and raise money for charity.

Athene Communications, a city centre PR and communications agency, will be singing Wham’s Last Christmas to raise money for the Young Peoples Counselling Service (YPCS) today Friday December 21 in Cathedral Square, Peterborough and they need your help.

It’s simple: Athene need as many people to join them as possible, because for every person they can film singing, Athene will donate £5 to the YPCS (up to a total of £1000), a charity which helps to provide free, accessible counselling for young people in Peterborough.

Members from Athene will be dressed as festive characters, blasting out music and most importantly giving away chocolates at 5.15pm by the Christmas tree in Cathedral Square – you won’t be able to miss them!

Whamageddon is a competition every December, where participants try to not hear the festive tune Last Christmas until Christmas Eve. If you’ve been playing (or even if you haven’t), come down and lose on purpose to raise some money for a fantastic local charity.

A YPCS spokesperson commented, “We are thrilled to be Athene Communications’ charity of the year 2019 and every penny that they raise will be used to support young people who have lost their way. YPCS provides desperately needed high quality 1:1 counselling and relies entirely on your donations. Thank you for your support!”

The Young Peoples Counselling Service is a non-government funded charity relying solely on charitable donations. In 2017, the YPCS team helped and supported over 150 young people, providing each child with up to 12 accessible counselling sessions completely free of charge.
