On Thursday 21st June we’re asking you to wear stripes – whether socks, a top, stripey trousers, or an accessory – and donate £5 to help us to help a family in need.
Does your child attend a nursery or school which may be able to support us? Can you and your colleagues all wear stripes for the day? We can supply you with a poster for your work, school or nursery, and we’d love to see an even bigger amount of people taking part than last year when we first launched this appeal. We hope you can help us achieve that.

We want the clothing packs we pass on to be as complete as possible. They may be going to Samara, who arrived with her Mum from Europe as part of a human trafficking ring. Mum and daughter are now safe after escaping, but they need our help for the essentials. Or to Jamie and Belle whose families are experiencing poverty due to ill health.
We want to build up a fund to buy the items we aim to include in all our clothing packs. More often than not we need to buy new pants, socks and nightwear for the clothing packs for older children. Clean, new items for boys and girls aged 2-13 years. Having the funds to purchase new underwear, socks and nightwear enables us to complete our packs of wonderful donated clothing from you, our supporters.
These essential items make such a difference so please, wear stripes on 21st June and remember to tell your friends, family and colleagues about our campaign!
Donate online here on Thursday 21st June.
