Make a difference this year by supporting Pepper’s.

The past couple of years have been a roller coaster for us all with many experiencing mental health challenges for the first time and for many with ongoing conditions they have been locked-down and lonely for months, struggling with constant uncertainty, their support networks disappearing.

Your donation however big or small will help us in our efforts to support the mental health and wellness of our community. We will be able to provide activities, such as Tai Chi and cookery classes, maintain our premises on the High Street, help people re-connect and get back into society.

We continue to get more referrals for those requiring our services and have expanded our opening hours to accommodate this ever growing need.

Every Donation Counts.
