Pecan Day

Pecan Day 2023  | Tuesday 5 December 2023

We are introducing Pecan Day

This is a fundraising day to support the people who access our services, many of whom are in a crisis situation. Individuals, communities, or organisations can host a fundraising event – from a coffee morning or a raffle, to gathering urgently required food for Southwark Foodbank.  Pecan Day will fall on 5 December each year, which is also International Volunteering Day. So, we will be asking as many people as possible to join us to raise funds and help transform lives through kindness, belief, and hope on Pecan Day. 

Support Us

Here’s what we are doing at Pecan …

Shahid, our Head of Food Services will complete a Pecan triathlon. He will swim 1 mile, and then cycle to Pecan (7 miles). At the end of the day he will run back home which is another 7 miles, so in total he will complete 15 miles. Support Shahid on Pecan Day

All services will join in a lunch hosted by our Food Services and SFAA. Staff will donate £1 to Pecan to take part in the quiz and £1 to sing a song. Support Food Services on Pecan Day

Central Team will be donating urgently required food for Southwark Foodbank. If you wish to donate food items, click on the link to see the items required and drop off at Pecan: Christmas Shopping List

Social Media

Please share photos of your Pecan Day on social media, as this is a great way to pick up tips from other hosts and share your event with Pecan, friends, family, and colleagues. 

Don’t forget to use the hashtag #PecanDay2023

APS (Approved Provider Status)
First achieved by our Moving On project in August 2015. The report states:

“Using a person-centred approach mentors were able to motivate mentees and to provide effective support with an impressive range of daily living issues… The Moving On mentors and management team are clearly very committed in their support of the mentees. Moreover, the project is well embedded in PECAN’s wider community services, such as the careers and employment support, the Foodbank and HOurBank that can also benefit the mentees.”
