We have helped raise in excess of £700,000 in 4 years for our local charity partners and hundreds of UK charities. This year we're delighted to be working with Stripey Stork, The Kent, Surrey and Sussex Air Ambulance and St Catherine's Hospice. We'll be announcing our other 2018 charity partners soon...
A local baby bank with a big heart. Stripey Stork collect donations of new and pre-loved items for babies and children (equipment, furniture, clothes and toys) and pass them on to families in need across East Surrey via network of health and community professionals.
Stripey Stork prides itself on passing on items in great condition. Families who receive items from Stripey Stork should feel they are receiving a gift and not a handout. Since starting in 2013 the group have responded to over 2300 requests for help and have passed items valuing more than £1m back into the community.
KENT, SURREY AND SUSSEX AIR AMBULANCE
The Air Ambulance is an independent charitable healthcare provider working with the Ambulance Service, providing a Helicopter Emergency Medical Service (HEMS).
Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance receives no statutory funding, relying almost entirely upon donations to keep the service going. Every penny, of the approximate £6.4 million we seek to raise each year comes from individuals, businesses, groups, and clubs from all over Kent, Surrey and Sussex.
The Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance relieves sick and injured people in South East England and surrounding areas by providing a Helicopter Emergency Medical Service (HEMS) and Air Ambulance Service for the benefit of the community.
