Last Thursday, we held our first pub quiz of 2023, raising money for our chosen charity Pecan. This was a great chance for Wandle staff to socialise outside of work, whilst also supporting a great cause. The quiz raised £150 for Pecan’s Southwark foodbank, which will help many families in need.
Pecan exists to ensure that no one in Southwark goes hungry. Their vision is for a UK without the need for foodbanks.
For people in sudden crisis – redundancy, benefit delay, illness, or even an unexpected bill – can mean going hungry. Every day parents skip meals to feed their children and people are forced to choose between paying the rent, or heating bills, and eating. Every year they give food parcels to thousands of people in the local area.
