Peter Kay donates to Children’s charity at London show. His first stand-up gig in over 12 years was greeted with a standing ovation before the show even began. And, now after selling at the O2 in London he’s donated £14,000 to a children’s charity for Christmas.
The generous donation was Peter’s Christmas spirit and represented £1 for every fan at his London O2 arena show.

“I’m going to put it in a children’s charity and I was looking at my phone on the way down and I found one called Action for Children.”
“They do a Secret Santa and it seems really lovely. There’s 14,000 people here, so if I take a pound that’s £14,000 for children on your behalf. So thanks!”
How incredible is that? What a lovely bit of good news in the run-up to Christmas. A spokesperson for the charity told the Mirror that it was an ‘amazing donation’ and would help them ‘support our frontline workers who are helping struggling families.’
