Pippa Gorman

Development Manager

Pippa has had experience working in a number of sectors including hospitality, care and administration.

In her role as a carer, Pippa worked closely with clients, helping them to maintain their independance and lead contented lives.

She loves travel, having ventured on several solo trips all over the world, and when not at Pepper's she can often be found on camping trips around the UK with her husband.

Pippa started working at Pepper's- A Safe Place in 2020. Since then she has helped the charity develop, growing our Oakham centre, opening our Melton centre and welcoming many new locals to our hubs.

Jenny Hendry

Melton Centre Manager

Jenny is the newest member of the Pepper’s team and manages the Melton Mowbray Centre.

She was previously a volunteer with Pepper’s, and very much enjoyed listening and talking to the members she met.

Before Pepper’s, Jenny worked at another local charity in a marketing, fundraising and admin role, and prior to that spent many years planning adventure holidays in the travel industry.

Her spare time is spent out and about cycling, doing yoga, cooking and continuing to enjoy exploring as much as possible!
