Give a Gift of Hope 

DONATE to Pecan this Christmas 

Give a Gift of Hope this Christmas with Pecan and Southwark Foodbank.  

This is going to be an especially hard Christmas for too many people. We are already seeing higher rates of hunger this year.  Help us to bring hope to families this winter. 

This year, Pecan and Southwark Foodbank for their Christmas campaign ‘Give a Gift of Hope. We will continue providing gift cards to 100 hundred families, and this year we will also be providing gift cards to single households as they make up to 60% of our clients. This will be alongside their special Christmas parcels with treats and small gifts. This is over and above the regular support we continue to offer at our centres. Demand for the foodbank has inevitably risen due to the cost-of-living crisis and now that winter has arrived. Your donations will go a long way to helping make Christmas that much more hopeful for people facing crisis and ongoing hardship.

Your kind donations and belief in people will also support families and individuals that access our other services. Each of our projects, from the Southwark Foodbank to Women’s Services, Together, Peckham Pantry and Employment, rely on our community to support them, and by donating to Pecan and Southwark Foodbank, you support each one of these projects 

Together we can Give a Gift of Hope this Christmas and continue to support the community into 2023 and beyond.
