We were pleased to run a charity car wash yesterday at the Maylands Business Centre where the Think office is based. Raising funds for the Pepper Foundation, a fantastic children's charity that we have supported for several years, the team took turns washing cars and we had a steady flow of customers from 10am to 4pm.
With a total of 18 vehicles (including 2 x vans!) washed, we are pleased to confirm that £180 was collected which, after being matched by the business, means a grand total of £360 raised.
A massive "well done" to our team who worked hard making the cars spotless and also a big "thank you" to the Maylands Business Centre for letting us set up the car wash and all of the tenants who supported the event!
We have now raised over £1600 for the Pepper Foundation in 2018 and look forward to raising more!
Please see below for pitctures and some further information about the great work the Pepper Foundation undertakes.
About The Pepper Foundation
The Pepper Foundation is a registered charity which funds the hospice at home children's nursing team. This innovative paediatric team, (known as the Pepper Nurses), offers specialist palliative care and support to children with a life-threatening or life-limiting illness throughout the Chilterns area of Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire. The six nurses work with families to provide individualised care and support for each child in their own home on a 24 hour, 365 days of the year, on-call basis.
The Pepper Nurses currently cares for up to 40 children at any one time, at absolutely no cost to the patients or their families.
What does the service provide?
The nurses are qualified paediatric nurses with extensive experience in caring for children and young people up to 19 years of age with conditions that require palliative or end-of-life care. The team works in partnership with all other professionals involved with the child and family to ensure co-ordination of care.
A terminal illness does not just affect the patient, healthy siblings can also be affected. Family support has always been an integral part of the nursing team's philosophy of care which is why The Pepper Foundation also provides funding for the Children's Support Facilitator who offers pre and post bereavement support to families and co-ordinates the Pepper Sibling Group.
