Fantastic news - PeCAN has been selected for the Green Match Fund, which means that from 18-25 April any donation you make to us will be DOUBLED by Big Give!


Double your donation, double the impact!

PeCAN is taking part in the Green Match Fund with the aim of raising £5,000 in just 1 week, from 18th - 25th April. These funds will be used to further PeCAN’s aim of supporting Petersfield and the surrounding villages to reduce carbon emissions and protect nature.

Every pound raised will be doubled by Big Give and will be put to good use in our nature recovery efforts, schools and youth engagement work, local business support, home retrofit advice and community outreach events. 

Gail Baird, Programme Manager at PeCAN, said:  

We are delighted to be selected for this match funding campaign. We are aiming to raise £5,000 in one week - that's £2,500 from your online donations that will be matched pound for pound by the Big Give’s Green Match Fund. So please support us. This is your opportunity to double your donation and double your impact to ensure Petersfield is fit for the future.

Over the winter months our increasingly popular A Fruit Tree in Every Garden project saw over 1000 subsidised fruit trees (funded by EHDC) distributed in and around Petersfield, taking the total number to nearly 2000 since the project began in 2020! This year we also gave away 3km of free hedging plants funded by The Tree Council.

PeCAN offered energy efficiency and retrofit support for two years via the Petersfield Area SuperHomes project, with 480 households receiving advice under the scheme, and over the past year a focus on nature recovery has seen a Swift Streets project take flight with 65 swift boxes installed in Petersfield so far, and 30 in the surrounding area. 

PeCAN offers fantastic free eco workshops to local schools, and we have successfully reached a milestone by delivering transformative sessions to over 600 children! In 2022 we also hosted the very successful Petersfield Eco Fair, in partnership with the Town Council, and this event returns to The Heath on Sunday 14th July this year (so save the date!).

How can you get involved?  

Donations will be generously matched by The Big Give during the campaign, meaning your money will have double the impact. If you are a UK tax payer you can add further value by donating with Gift Aid.

If you would like to see PeCAN continue and expand our work in and around Petersfield, visit and make a donation between midday 18th – midday 25th April!  

Thank you
