We’re raising money for our Bags 4 School appeal in conjunction with Stripey Stork, a Surrey based charity supporting families in need. This project aims to equip children experiencing hardship with a school bag filled with age appropriate school essentials to help them maximise their education by giving them the best possible start. How will the funding be spent? All donations received via this fundraising page will be used to buy school bags and supplies for children. The scheme works in the same way as a food bank, by referral. Care professionals such as health visitors, schools and social workers identify children with the greatest need. As well as cash donations we are always looking for donations of new school bags and supplies so if you can help with this, please email Stripey Stork email@example.com. How will this benefit the children? By providing children with the essential tools they need for school we: Reduce their worries associated with being ill-equipped; Help reduce visibility of their financial circumstances; Send a message that someone else is routing for them in tough times; and Demonstrate that they deserve the same opportunity to maximise their education as others. Ultimately by helping with this appeal you’ll be giving a child in the UK a better start inspiring them to work hard, maximise their education and be successful. Who knows, over the longer term, those who were helped by the appeal may become the contributors and advocates for future appeals, thus creating a legacy that will help generations to come. An example of what could be purchased with your donation £5 – Will buy a maths set and a writing pen £10 – Will buy and fill a pencil case with many stationery school essentials £20 – Will buy a school bag and a scientific calculator for a child at secondary school
