Santa Stork: our annual Christmas campaign that delivers gifts and makes memories for local children in need.

New stretch target

Stripey Stork provides gifts for those who really need a helping hand at this difficult time of year. The video above is a collection of the 'thank you' messages from last year and shows just how needed and appreciated the campaign is. Unlike our regular donations, these gifts are new and in some cases will be the main or only present they’ll receive this Christmas. Our aim is to ensure we have enough funds to buy presents for ever child and parent/carer referred to us this Christmas.

This year our c1637066964_net-logo-mobile.jpgampaign has been supported by the National Emergencies Trust Local Action Fund.  Any donations made (up to a maximum of £250 per donation, per card) will be DOUBLED by the NET up to a maximum of £10,000.  This is an amazing opportunity to make your money go further. For example, if you donate £100 this will be doubled to £200, and if you’re able to add gift aid we will receive a total of £225!

This year we have a real challenge - we are expecting the demand to be greater than ever, with many more families already thrown into crisis because of the pandemic coupled with the end of the furlough scheme and the removal of the uplift in universal credit.

We are scaling-up to respond to 5,000 children and 2,500 parents/carers gift requests this year.

We also understand that some of our usual supporters will have been experiencing financial difficulties of their own. If you are in a position to help, one of the ways you can support the campaign is to make a financial donation. All funds donated via this page will be used for the Santa Stork 2021 campaign to help us in our mission to ensure that every local child has a present to open on Christmas Day. In the event that there are funds remaining after Christmas 2021 they will be put towards our work supporting local families in 2022.

If you are a UK tax payer, please remember to add gift aid to make your donation go even further.

Thank you for your support, it really is very much appreciated!
