Isle of Wight charity Pan Together receives £10,000 from P3P Partners

Rachel Thomson and Ross Sinfield, Supervisor at P3P Partners’ Isle of Wight Peaking Plant

We are thrilled to announce that Pan Together, an Isle of Wight charity committed to supporting the East Newport community, has been awarded a £10,000 grant through our Green KW Community Interest Solar Scheme.

The charity serves as a community hub in one of the Island’s most statistically disadvantaged areas, and this funding aims to empower their ongoing efforts.

“This really substantial financial donation from P3P Partners will make an absolutely terrific contribution to our community support and anti-poverty services. Sadly, these are becoming increasingly essential to local residents when the cost of living crisis is biting so hard for so many.

94% of places in the country are more affluent than Pan and a shocking 35% of local children are growing up in poverty against an England average of 17%. These statistics are from September 2019 and the situation has undoubtedly worsened in the wake of the pandemic and the increasingly tough economic climate.

Times are incredibly hard for local people. We can’t change the world but we can and do make a tangible and direct difference to people’s lives. The need is certainly urgent and pressing and we can’t thank P3P Partners enough for their really significant support.”

"We are delighted to have made a contribution to Pan Together. P3P has had operations on the Island for a decade and is always keen to support the local community."
