The Pepper Foundation Cheque Handover

We surprised The Pepper Foundation with a cheque for £86,000 YOU helped raise for our charity, Global's Make Some Noise

We dropped in to see The Pepper Foundation at one of their popular coffee mornings to surprise them with a cheque for £86,000! Money that YOU helped raise for our charity, Global’s Make Some Noise.

The Pepper Foundation supports children and their families in Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire, funding hospice at home palliative care for life-limited children and young people. The money raised by Heart Four Counties and Global’s Make Some Noise will completely fund the cost of a Pepper nurse for 2 years, providing total care to 38 youngsters in their own homes, delivering life-changing benefits for the people helped by The Pepper Foundation

Grants are awarded to projects across the UK that help disadvantaged youngsters living with illness, disability or lack of opportunity. In its first three years, Global’s Make Some Noise has raised nearly nearly £6 million and raised awareness for 135 incredible charities and projects around the UK. Charities like The Pepper Foundation. 

Young people from all walks of life deserve the same opportunities, and The Pepper Foundation does a great job of helping local youngsters. It is incredibly difficult for small charities like Pepper to be heard, and thats where we can help! So as well as raising money for the charity, we’ve helped them raise awareness and grow their network of donors so they can continue to do more great work. 

Eric Pillinger, Trustee at The Pepper Foundation said: “We’re overwhelmed by the generosity of Heart Four Counties and its listeners.  We knew we were getting a grant for £32,563 from Global’s Make Some Noise and they surprised us with an extra £53,437 taking the total to £86,000 and completely surpassing our expecations.  We want to thank Heart Four Counties and its listeners for their support. Through this funding we’ll be able to fund a Pepper nurse for not 1 but 2 years, providing total care to 38 youngsters in their own homes. We’re over the moon about the difference we can make in 2017 and beyond.”
