We give back

We have been working and supporting charities since the very beginning. We are very proud of the work we have done to help those in need and to be supporting the amazing charities we work with.

Stripey Stork

Stripey Stork is a volunteer run charity based in Surrey, started by a group of mums who wanted to see the items their babies and children no longer needed re-used in the local community. They support children and parents experiencing hardship by working in partnership with social services such as children’s centres, health visitors, women’s shelters and other social service agencies. All donations go directly to the families they support, and each item to someone who specifically needs it.

 

What we do to support

We donate new and pre-loved toys, clothes and equipment for babies and children to Stripey Stork and after making sure they’re safe and clean, they re-home them to local families in need. Stripey Stork prides itself on passing on items in great condition. It's important the families who receive these items feel they are receiving a gift and not a handout. Since our partnership began we have donated over 200 products, volunteered in their warehouse and given monetary donations to support their warehouse expansion.

Giving the gift

"This buggy has allowed Mum to attend her Support Group getting the children there safely. It obviously means such a lot to her – one of the support team there saw her padlocking it outside the centre to make sure her precious new buggy was left secure...."
