Santa Stork 2018 – Our Giving Day

“Christmas is doing a little something extra for someone.” – Charles M. Schulz Our Santa Stork campaign really does get more extraordinary every year.

Since October we have been building up to Giving Day, which was held on Monday 10th December this year. It was an early start for #TeamStork.

Born on the Breadline

We watched the recent Channel 4 Dispatches programme – Born on the Breadline, with anticipated interest on Monday 29th October 2018. It highlighted the growing need for UK baby banks in the last 5 years and interviewed some of the working parents who had no choice but to turn to charitable donations to be able to feed and clothe their children. We were one of the organisations that were invited to provide stories, statistics and information for their research, and we were pleased to be able to contribute to this ground-breaking survey. If you missed it then you can watch it on Catch Up.   Here are some of the shocking facts and statistics revealed: There are now...

Stripey Stork’s Christmas Tree – we need your help!

We just love Christmas at Stripey Stork, not least because it’s when we have our biggest campaign of the year – Santa Stork.

A hall full of twinkly and unique Christmas trees would even get Scrooge in the Christmas mood. As Team Stork never miss an opportunity to get creative and be at the hub of our fab community, we’ve jumped at the chance to be involved and we hope you and your...
