Stripes4Stripey Thursday 20th June 2024

Our Stripes4Stripey campaign is a day when we raise vital funds that will enable us to support as many families as possible across Surrey with the essential items they need. The local families who need our help are struggling more than ever, with new families being referred to us all the time. We are currently supporting over 200 families a week. Times are extremely tough and this annual event helps us to raise vital funds. It’s fun but most of all, it’s needed.

There are lots of ways to get involved – wear your stripes and donate, get your school or workplace involved, hold a bake sale or sponsored events.

How you can get involved

We hear lots of stories of families who are struggling to make ends meet at the moment, and rising utility bills and the cost of living are set to make things even more difficult.  

  • First and foremost: wear something Stripey on Thursday 20th June and make a donation.
  • Take a selfie and post it on social media so that we can add it to our montage – we love seeing all your stripes! Tag us @StripeyStork and/or use the hashtag #Stripes4Stripey2024.
  • Organise a bake-off or cake sale in your place of work, community group or school.
  • Come along to our Quiz Night at Reigate Manor on Thursday 20th June.

Curry and quiz

The Stripes4Stripey Quiz at Reigate Manor falls on the same day as our campaign, so the perfect excuse to wear your stripes! You can choose the vegetarian or chicken curry to fuel your brain, and it’s just £17 per person. Fill a table with a team of 6-10 people, or come along and join up with like-minded individuals on the night.

The bar opens at 6.30pm, with the quiz starting at 7.30pm until 11.30pm.

Stripey will see you there!

Stripey goes back to school

We’re always delighted when schools join in the fun for Stripes4Stripey. Teachers tells us that Stripey Stork is a tangible way to teach children about charity, recycling and appreciating that there are people less fortunate than them. We’d love for you to join in the fun.

  • Get your children wearing something Stripey on Thursday 20th June.
  • Hold a bake sale or ice lolly sale and donate proceeds to Stripes4Stripey.
  • Plan a sponsored event.

Let us know what you are planning and Stripey can even make a visit to your school.

Make your workplace stripey

It’s time to have some fun! Stripes4Stripey is an easy way to engage your teams, support a local charity and make a real difference in the local community. Encourage everyone to take part and we’d love to see your photos.

Perhaps you’d like to hold a competition for the most stripey outfit, or the most creative use of stripes? Cake sales are always popular (and you get extra points for making your bakes stripey!)
