Volunteering with Stripey Stork

Stripey Stork is powered by dedicated and passionate volunteers and we are always looking for enthusiastic people to join our team.

Are you looking for volunteering opportunities in Surrey? If you would like to volunteer with us, either on a regular or ad-hoc basis, as an individual, with a group of friends or as part of a community group, then we’d love to hear from you. Our HQ is conveniently located near Reigate town centre and we have parking available.

You’ll be able to make a real difference and contribute to an organisation with ambitious plans. You’ll have the opportunity to use your existing skills and learn new ones. Training and support will be provided.

We are very proud to have been recognised with the highest award a voluntary group can receive in the UK. The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service recognises outstanding work in the local community and excellence in voluntary activities.  which is the equivalent of an MBE for voluntary groups.

Case Study: From Storklet to Stork in a Day

Did you know a female baby stork is also known as a storklet? Well, today I spread my wings and grew into a fully-fledged stork. I have to admit, I hadn’t volunteered for a while, but as Nicola, the inspiration behind Stripey Stork, reassured another volunteer: “That’s absolutely OK, we understand that people have busy lives. We just appreciate any time you can give and our door is always open”. So, there was only one thing left to do, put my apron on, roll up my sleeves and get stuck in!
