During 2012 we successfully secured funding from Big Lottery England to provide one to one befriending, group work, social events and educational outings throughout rural areas of South Shropshire.

We are delighted to announce that we have recently opened a new charity shop called ‘Whatever Next’ at 8 Church Street, Cleobury Mortimer DY14 8BS to raise funds for our members. We are selling donated items such as women’s, men’s and children’s clothes, shoes, bric a brac, dvd’s, books etc. All money raised in this shop is spent on improving the lives of isolated members residing in rural South Shropshire.
