Board of Trustees

Paul Jones.jpg

Chair of Trustees

Paul Jones

Paul rejoined Pecan’s Board in 2013. He was led to Pecan by his firm belief in God’s power to transform lives through the practical love of his people. He has over 35 years of experience as a Trustee of various organisations. Paul works for Release International as their UK Operations Manager.


Trustee & Treasurer

Eleanor Orr

Eleanor joined Pecan over seven years ago as a volunteer with Southwark Foodbank. Offering to serve as a Trustee seemed the natural next step. Eleanor is a qualified accountant with more years of experience in charity accounting than she cares to admit! We gratefully put her skills to very good use when we invited her to be our Treasurer. Eleanor is a member of All Saints Church, Peckham.


Ola Obembe

Ola joined Pecan in 2017. Having grown up locally, it means a lot to her to be involved with the work Pecan is doing in the community. Ola works as an adjudicator at the Financial Ombudsman Service. She works as part of a team to ensure businesses are working in compliance with financial service rules.

Graham Gordon.jpg


Graham Gordon

Graham joined Pecan in 2020. He has lived in Peckham for six years and his children attend a local school.  He is a member of All Saints Church, Peckham, where he is involved in ministry in Brixton prison and coordinates the marriage ministry with his wife, Ali.

Graham works for CAFOD (Catholic Agency for Overseas Development) as the Head of Public Policy and has worked in Latin America on issues of human rights and discrimination. He was attracted to Pecan because of its focus on giving everyone an opportunity and on mobilising the church and those with power to bring change to local people.

Alison Inglis-Jones.jpeg


Alison Inglis-Jones

Alison has worked in public affairs and public relations for PR agencies prior to her twenty five year active involvement in the voluntary sector. She is an experienced trustee previously on Boards including the Challenge (NCS) and the Trussell Trust. She is a Board member of Magic Breakfast, Traidcraft, Ataloss and Brixton & West Norwood Foodbank as well as Uganda-based Capstone.  She provides pro bono public affairs advice to a wide number of charities, social enterprises and social businesses and is committed to understanding and addressing the issues facing those who are most disadvantaged in society. 

David Porter.jpg


David Porter

David is a business consultant who has worked with Accenture and EY among other organisations. Most recently he was Chief Operating Officer for MeteoGroup, who supply weather forecasts for the BBC. He is married to Alex, who is Pecan’s longest-standing team member. David has been deeply involved in the development of our business plan and the Peckham Pantry project, and is excited to be part of Pecan’s work transforming lives through kindness, belief and hope.
