Wear ‘Stripes 4 Stripey’ on Thursday 21st June and help local families in need!

On Thursday 21st June we’re asking you to wear stripes – whether socks, a top, stripey trousers, or an accessory – and donate £5 to help us to help a family in need.

We can supply you with a poster for your work, school or nursery, and we’d love to see an even bigger amount of people taking part than last year when we first launched this appeal.

We asked if there were any other ways we could help and the ‘Stork...

Stripey Stork wishlist (May 2018)

We recognise we are very lucky to be so well supported by our community, and sometimes this means we have to put a hold on receiving items we are well stocked with! We appreciate your donations very much, but we have limited space, so to allow us to catch up with sorting all of your  donated goods, our wish list is very specific this month. We know you all have lots of items to offer, so we’ve prepared this page to show you where to take the items we are not able to accept at the moment.   Items we need during May: Toiletries – Women’s shower gel, women’s deodorant, baby bubble bath (all new and unopened please). We have some listed in our Amazon...
