The Shrewsbury Ark relies entirely on generous donations to survive. We NEVER charge for our services, everything you give is used purely to help those in need.

It costs us £120,000 per year to keep The Ark open five days a week, so every donation is gratefully received.

To set up a regular donation or to make a one off gift please visit our donation page on the Charities Aid Foundation. Click here to make a donation online now.

You can alternatively call us on 01743 363305 or email

If you are a UK tax payer please consider sending us a completed gift aid form (which can be found at the bottom of this page). This will increase your donation to us by 25%, as we can reclaim the basic rate of tax on your gift - at no extra cost to you.

Thank you.
