Lifeline for vulnerable East Surrey families

The work of Stripey Stork, the baby bank that is a lifeline for ‘at risk’ families in Reigate and Redhill – supplying them with practical (donated) items to raise their children – is paramount in this crisis. Thanks to the charity’s volunteer team, referral partners, supporters and funders – including the Community Foundation for Surrey, which awarded a £5,000 grant from the Coronavirus Response Fund – it has continued to meet individual family requests at the high level pre-lockdown AND supported 532 additional families from the start of the crisis to 30th April. That’s despite running a skeleton service of reduced staff/days/ hours. Essential supplies including nappies, toiletries and stationery have gone out via bulk requests from the charity’s referral partners, to support the most vulnerable families in local communities.
