We raise money for brilliant local homeless charity

We've raised £100 for The Shrewsbury Ark - a brilliant and committed local charity that supports Shropshire's homeless.

Many of the team forfeited the traditional Mid West Displays Secret Santa this year - and donated to this charity. 

We visited The Ark's drop-in centre in Castle Foregate Shrewsbury to hand over our donation. It was truly inspiring to hear from Rose and Lenny at the centre about the brilliant outreach work they do across the county.

Not only do they help with the day-to-day needs of the homeless - food and temporary accommodation - but they support longer term activities that will take the homeless off the streets permanently. This work involves everything from setting up bank accounts so they can receive benefits to helping people get back into education or employment, and finding permanent accommodation.

Their work starts early everyday, and we were delighted to know our modest donation will be used to fund essential activities.

Everyone we met at The Ark were welcoming and positive - we wish them a Merry Xmas and all the best for 2019.
