Watford Accountancy firm Hillier Hopkins has chosen to support The Pepper Foundation, a charity which aims to alleviate the suffering of children diagnosed with life-limiting and life-threatening illnesses. The firm is holding a charity luncheon in The View at Watford Football club on Friday 15th May 2020. The day includes a champagne reception, charity auction, raffle, a gourmet 3 course lunch and a guest speaker. Tickets are £60 per person and tables of 10 are also available from kirsten.byers@hhllp.co.uk.

 

Ruth Proudfoot, speaking on behalf of The Pepper Foundation said:

“Our specialist nurses provide paediatric care for children living with serious illnesses in Buckinghamshire and Hertfordshire. Care is provided free of charge in patients’ own homes and the nurses are unique to the area in that they are available 24 hours a day, all year round. Our aim is to ensure that children with complex health needs can enjoy the best quality of life possible, however short that life may be. The help we receive from organisations such as Hillier Hopkins makes a huge difference to our ability to fund much-needed care, respite, stability and most importantly hope, for families at a time when they need it most.”
 

Alex Bottom, Managing Principal at Hillier Hopkins:

“We are delighted to support The Pepper Foundation and are looking forward to working with them for the next year. We are hoping to raise much needed funds and awareness about their valuable work.  As anyone with a family can imagine, having a seriously ill child must be horrendous, so being able to have hospice at home helps to reduce the strain on the whole family at this awful time.”
