Pecan is a charity operating in Southwark, formed in 1989 to help build a stronger community. The charity offers a range of services, including employment support, resettlement support and the Southwark Foodbank . There are two foodbanks in Bermondsey and one in Peckham.

Prem Goyal and Aaron D’Souza from GMC attended the dinner which was hosted at the White House Pub in Peckham.

After the meal, Joel Nazar, Pecan’s Community Fundraiser & Communications Officer, said: “We wish to thank Prem and GMC for their kindness in funding the event. Many of our wonderful staff and volunteers stayed late into the night to continue socialising and enjoying themselves.”

Thank you to Joel Nazar and Chris Price, Pecan’s Executive Director, for helping to organise this wonderful event.
