Thank you for once again getting behind our campaign and helping to support local Mums on Mother’s Day. Such kindness can make such a difference to a Mum at an all-time low. It shows her that people care, which encourages her to stay strong and gives hope that life will get better.
Thanks to your generosity and kindness, this year we were able to give out 608 pampering gifts.
A Gift for Mum is our annual Mother’s Day Campaign and we want our community to come together to celebrate mums. We believe that every Mum deserves to hear that she is doing a fantastic job but with many families struggling at the moment, celebrating Mother’s Day with even the smallest gift will be a luxury that they simply can not afford.
At Stripey Stork, we are seeing first hand the impact of the cost of living crisis, lots of local families are struggling with rising prices and energy bills. Our referral partners tell us about superhero mums who are keeping things together in the face of extremely difficult circumstances – putting their needs last and regularly going without to provide for their children. They wouldn’t dream of spending budget on themselves and many don’t have a support network to make sure that they have a little gift to open on Mother’s Day.
We’d like to be able to give the mums referred to us a little pampering gift and a hand written card to open on Mother’s Day. We know that this small gesture means so much – it shows that the community cares and everything they do is appreciated.
Our little orange bags are filled with treats for mums and we need your help to fill them.
Please bring any brand new toiletries or gifts sets to our Stripey Stork Warehouse in Reigate and our volunteers will make up these lovely orange bags for mums this Mother’s Day.
Please bring all donations by Friday 10th March.
51a Albert Road North, Reigate, RH2 9EL
Subject to availability, any gift packs leftover after Mother’s Day will be distributed in the weeks following. If we are lucky enough to have even more left after this period, then we will be including them with our ‘care packages’ sent throughout the year to local families in need – as a gift to Mum if it’s felt that it will be a well-received boost. Likewise, any funds leftover will also be used to support our general work throughout the year.
Thank you for your support.
