As a small charity, we rely on the generosity of people and business in and around the Forest of Dean and their donations.

There are many ways in which you, as an individual or business can help us. Here’s just a few ideas:

20 mile sponsored walk

You may remember back last year, a lovely gentleman called Simon wanted to ‘mark’ the incredible event we were all experiencing and still are! He decided to shave his head and raised almost an incredible £1500 for us!
Simon is a regular supporter of the charity, organising concerts with the local Male Voice Choir he sings with. Obviously, they are unable to meet due to COVID and he has taken to walking to lose weight and improve his mental wellbeing. He is now planning on walking 20 miles for us despite an arthritic knee!
The first £500 will be matched funded which means Forest Pulse will get £1000 so let’s help him reach his target!!
It is amazing that even in the difficult times we are all still experiencing, people are still thinking of ways that they can help others.
We are so so grateful and appreciative of what Simon is doing for Forest Pulse so let’s show him some support for an extraordinary effort he is making for us!
Simon raised an amazing £1,170!
Thank you Simon and all those who supported him and us! 


MAZFest was a one day music festival to celebrate the life of Mario Constantinides, former owner of The Miner Arms, Whitecroft, founder of the fantastic Whitecroft Wellie festival and friend to those who knew him well. Mario was a big supporter of Forest Pulse so the amazing organisers of MAZFest decided to raise funds for us as we were a close charity to Mario.

Thank you to those who organised the event and those who supported it!

You raised an amazing £2,113.47!

Thank you all so much!

Collecting boxes:
You may have seen our collecting boxes dotted around various businesses in the Forest of Dean but if you know of somewhere that may have one for us on their counter please let us know.

Penny Boxes:
Quite a few of our members have kindly offered to have small little penny boxes to collect their small change. Pennies really do make pounds so if you think you can spare some of your coppers call us for a box.

Make a monthly payment:
Just a small donation monthly can make a huge difference. Contact Jean to find out how.

Gift Aid:
If you are a regular Tax Payer, adding Gift Aid to your donation can generate an extra 25p for every £1 that is donated. If you or anyone you know is organising a fund raising event on our behalf please contact us in advance, as we can recommend ways money raised can be Gift Aided.
