Some people don’t have baby items to donate but would still like to support us in some way.
One way is to help us provide extra items for families and volunteers.
We always have a current Amazon wish list of essential new items which we continually need to complement the preloved packs we send out, such as nappies, toiletries, changing mats, bottle teats and underwear. It's a hassle-free, affordable and effective way to help local families in need.
Deliveries are made direct to our office, which means they can be used that very same day if necessary. You could even do your shopping through Amazon Smile and then everyone really is winning.
Then sign up for the weekly Tandridge Together Lottery and you’re in with a chance of winning up to £25k, and many other prizes.Tickets are only £1 a week, with 50% of the proceeds going to us, your chosen charity.
Amazon Smile is so easy to set up, just follow the link and select Stripey Stork as your chosen charity.
Register using your usual Amazon login and when you shop through Amazon in future, just shop through the Smile link and Amazon will donate 0.5% of the price of your eligible purchases to us.
You can buy pre-paid in-store grocery cards from Give As You Live.Your reloadable grocery store cards, available for all major supermarket chains, can be ordered online, will be sent in the post and are a great way to budget for your shopping, whilst raising vital funds for us.
Spending £100 a week will raise an impressive £100 a year, at no extra cost to you.
You can turn your unwanted car into cash for us with Giveacar.They arrange a free collection from your home at a time that’s convenient for you. Your car will then be auctioned or scrapped, and the proceeds will be donated back to us.

If you shop online you can join the Give As You Live scheme and choose Stripey Stork as your charity to support.You can raise money for us just by shopping online, with over 4200 participating retailers, including Amazon, John Lewis, Tesco, Sainsbury's, eBay and Boots. The commission earned is turned into much needed funds for us.
Perhaps those items we were unable to take could help us after all? Here’s a simple guide to setting this up. You can also choose to add gift aid to your donation, providing you are a UK taxpayer, meaning that your donation is worth even more.
You can choose to make a one-off or monthly direct debit donation via Localgiving.These regular funds may be used directly to buy new items needed to complement our preloved packs, such as new mattresses for a donated moses baskets.
And to make your money go even further, we benefit from buying such items in bulk from In Kind Direct at a fraction of the retail price. Having such funds in reserve means that we are also well-placed to respond quickly to one-off requests for specific items.
