Thank You For Your Support

The support of our local community is essential to the existance of the Ark.  Fundraising not only brings much needed funds into the Ark, it also raises awareness of our charity and the vulnerable people and issues we work with. 

Sponsored sporting achievements, cake sales and social events are just some of the ways we have been supported by local people in the past. 

Please get in touch if you would like to fundraise for us, we will be happy to support your efforts.


We are always grateful for non-monetary donations and items that can't be used in the Day Centre or given directly to our homeless clients, can often be sold in our charity shop to raise funds and are clients are able to visit the shop to select items that they need.

  • Food - Non-perishable food items, such as tea, coffee, sugar, cereals, tinned meat, vegetables and fish, cakes, biscuits                                      

  • Non-food Items -  We are always in need of sleeping bags, tents, rucksacks and toiletries at the day centre.

These items can be dropped off at our day centre:  32 Castle Foregate, Shrewsbury, SY1 2EH, during our opening hours which are 9-2pm Monday to Friday.

Call 01743 363 305 for more information or to find out if we can make use of what you've got!

  • Charity Shop - Donations of  clothing, books, bric-a-brac and household items should be taken directly to the charity shop on Castle Foregate, Monday - Saturday 9.30 am - 4.30pm. Call 01743 236 989 to book a drop off slot.
