A Berkhamsted charity is asking the public to help their fundraising efforts as they feel the strain amid the cost of living crisis.

The Pepper Foundation, a charity which provides funds for children’s hospice services, has seen its fuel costs rise as they make vital trips to children in Buckinghamshire and Hertfordshire.

In 2021, the nursing team drove over 22,313 miles - almost once around the earth.
