Become a Friend of Pepper and you can help support Pepper nurses in caring for sick children and their families throughout the North West Herts and the Chilterns area of Bucks. With your help the Pepper Foundation can raise the £450,000 needed annually to continue funding the service into the future.
We cannot do this from fundraising events alone. Joining Friends of Pepper is one way you can help us maintain this vital service for local children and their families. Regular income commitments from Friends by standing order help us to plan ahead and reduce administration costs. If you would like to renew your Friends of Pepper annually by bank transfer, or make regular small donation to Pepper by standing order, please call our Admin & Support Manager on 01442 507324. We will be pleased to send you a form for completion and return.
Friends of Pepper membership is valid for 12 months. The minimum donation is £12 a year – but you can donate more if you want to to. Our running costs are constantly rising to keep pace with demand but you can be assured that the charity's administration costs are kept to a minimum. We have just three part-time employees - everyone else is a volunteer.
Friends of Pepper receive:
- A personal copy of our lively Pepper News newsletter
- Occasional enews bulletins giving up-to-date news and information on fundraising events
- Details of events and the opportunity to purchase tickets* in advance of selected public ticket launches
(eg. Summer musical events, Pepper Ball and more)
*note this offer is restricted to one application per household, not per person. Max. 10 tickets per application.
We sometimes call on our Friends when we need some extra help at a fundraising event. In the words taken from the Beatles' Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band Album – "We'll get by with a little help from our friends".

You may like to consider maximising your donation to us by completing the Gift Aid Declaration Form in the membership pack. In this way you can increase the value of every donation you make to The Pepper Foundation at no cost to you. Government legislation means that for every pound donated under the Gift Aid scheme the Pepper Foundation can reclaim the tax you have paid on all donations you make, and we'll receive an extra 25p from HMRC. Learn more about Gift Aid.
Thank you very much from all the Pepper Trustees and, more importantly, from the children whose lives we can improve together.
