Rota-Toy Appeal 2018

We would like to say a huge thank you to you all for your kind donations of the Christmas boxes and the huge amount of lovely toys that were too big to fit in the boxes for the Rota Toy Appeal. These were taken by the rotary club to the ‘Tree of Life’ charity in Wythenshawe who support the local community. We are so grateful to you and your families for your kind generosity. The boxes will now be distributed by the Wilmslow Rotary members to the children and families that are less fortunate than ours just in time for Christmas. A heartfelt thank you from us all at Pepperberry.

Turtle Bus


We would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who donated money for our sponsored staff sleep over. With the money we raised we purchased our Turtle Bus. The children love to go out on our trips around Wilmslow and we get lots of positive comments from the local community.
