Stoke Newington charity store celebrates helping over 180 critically ill children

The Children’s Air Ambulance (TCAA) charity store in Stoke Newington, is celebrating funding more than 180 lifesaving missions for critically ill babies and children across the UK, as the charity celebrates 10 years of vital service.

The charity store opened its doors on 04 November 2016 and is situated near Stoke Newington tube station in London and is surrounded by a variety of parks. Over the past seven years the charity store has generated £646,996.00, amazingly funding more than 180 vital missions – enabling the charity to continue saving young lives.

The store – known for receiving exquisite designer and high-end fashion line stock – has also received 19,411 bags of donated goods but continues to require support from the local community with further donations of new and preloved items, as these provide vital income for the children’s charity.

The Children’s Air Ambulance is changing the face of paediatric and neonatal care through the high-speed transfer of critically ill babies and children – flying them from one hospital to another for specialist care via the clinically designed helicopters, which provide a flying intensive care unit for babies and children.

Stoke Newington TCCA Store Manager Ade Bakare said: “We would like to thank everyone in the local community for their amazing support and generous donations over the past seven years. Without support like this our charity wouldn’t be able to continue saving the lives of critically ill babies and children across the UK.”

“We would like to encourage as many people as possible to continue giving their bric-a-brac, preloved items and unwanted clothing as these really do provide vital income for the children’s charity,” he added.

The charity is celebrating its 10th anniversary of providing lifesaving high-speed transfers for critically ill babies and children in 2023 and is encouraging people to visit a charity store and grab a bargain, donate unwanted clothing to one of many clothing banks, get involved in a challenge event, fundraise, or even sign up to volunteer.
