PECT announce 30 for 30 Fund winners

PECT Update

Last year saw local environment charity PECT celebrate 30 years of creating sustainable places locally, regionally, and internationally. A charity with its roots in Peterborough, PECT set out to empower community groups by announcing their 30 for 30 Fund in October last year. Applications exceeded expectations, with over 50 applications being received from community groups, parish councils, schools, and villages across the region.

Successful submissions were projects that aligned with PECT’s core vision and values of protecting and enhancing the natural world, promoting health and wellbeing, and inspiring people to live more sustainably.

Winning projects included Peterborough Cathedral, who will be planting part of the grounds with native ferns and mosses to encourage more biodiversity, Green Welford Community Events, who will use the funding to continue their successful Net Zero community programme; Railworld, who will be restoring two historic bridges on their site with reclaimed materials, and North Luffenham PFA who will be restoring their school pond.

“We had so many wonderful applications, it was difficult to whittle them down, so we decided to expand the funding pot and campaign to support as many groups as possible,” says Stuart Dawks, CEO at PECT, “We can’t wait to see some of the progress and outcomes of the fund.”

Due to the number of entrants, PECT decided to award 49 projects with funding, taking the fund total to over £35,000.
