Geographical remit: 


A baby bank with heart. 

Stripey Stork collect new and pre-loved items for babies and children (equipment, furniture, clothes and toys) and rehome them with families in need in East Surrey. 

Started by a group of mums, we take great pride in the items handed over. We want recipients to feel they are receiving a gift and not a handout.  

Stripey Stork take referrals from health professionals (health visitors, social workers, women's refuges etc) and get great feedback on the range and quality of the items we can source. 


Collecting, checking and distributing baby items. 

Stripey Stork was founded in 2013 and became a registered charity in 2015. 

We have responded to nearly 1400 requests for help and passed on items with a value of over £750k. 

Our aim is to respond to 1000 requests for help in 2016. 

When the parcel from Stripey Stork arrived on that cold, bleak day back in January I suddenly knew that my baby and I weren’t all alone in the world and that there are amazing people out there who cared enough to help me when I needed it most. I will never forget what they did for me.”
