LOCAL charity, The Pepper Foundation, are asking the community to host picnics this summer to help fund children’s hospice at home care in Buckinghamshire and Hertfordshire in their first campaign – Picnic for Pepper.
The Pepper Foundation are launching their Picnic for Pepper campaign to help raise funds and awareness for local hospice at home care for children with life-limiting conditions.
All the money raised from these picnics will help children in the area receive hospice at home care at no cost to the families.
The Tring-based Charity also organise family fun days for the children and their relatives to help them make lasting memories.
Chair of The Pepper Foundation, Pat Daley, said: ‘Picnic for Pepper is a fun, easy and cost-effective way to get your friends and loved ones together for a good cause, some fresh air and yummy food, too.
‘Your Picnic for Pepper can be as big or as small as you like, in any location you like, for whatever price you like – and we have a free downloadable picnic pack for everyone with printable invitations, posters, social media graphics and more.
‘And if you are hosting a child-friendly picnic, it will be a great way to get the next generation thinking about charitable causes and how raising money can be lots of fun. And Teddy Bears should always be welcome!
‘At Pepper, we understand the importance of making precious memories with our children – no matter how long we have with them. Our hope is that the families in our community will take the Picnic for Pepper as an opportunity to make moments that will last a lifetime with their loved ones.
‘We would be so touched if you can host a Picnic for Pepper this summer.
‘As a small charity, every penny really does make such a huge difference to us and families like Riley and Stanley (right).’ View their case study in PDF format.
The Pepper Foundation would be very grateful if you would consider gathering your friends and family to help raise money for a local cause this summer.
