Bags for Schools Appeal
Could you help?

Children experiencing hardship may not be able to start the school year with a proper school bag and complete set of equipment.


Esure are collating equipment for a local Bags4School campaign and it will be distributed to referred local children by local charity Stripey Stork. 

Can you help with either financial donations via the just giving page, or by donating equipment?

The campaign aims to provide children with the essential tools they need for school to:

  • reduce 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
  • demonstrate that they deserve the same opportunity to maximise their education as others.

Receiving school equipment can ultimately give a local child a better start, inspiring them to work hard, maximise their education and be successful.


Donations of equipment can be dropped in to Reigate & Banstead Borough Council at the Town Hall in Reigate, or to the Harlequin Theatre and Cinema in Redhill.


Equipment needed includes:


• Good quality fashion backpack

• Handwriting pen or fountain pen

• Ballpoint pens

• HB pencils

• Colored pens/pencils

• A4 lined pad

• Pencil case

• Scientific calculator

• Highlighters

• Rubber

• 30cm ruler

• Pencil sharpener

• 360-degree protractor

• Compass

• Set square

• Water bottle.
